Sustainability at BCIT

Our commitment to sustainability encompasses everything from advancing the state of practice through education and research, to improving the efficiency of campus operations, to engaging the community across the Institute.


BCIT’s first Sustainability Vision charts an exciting but complex journey for the Institute. It will be an exercise in tenacity and change management, underpinned by cross-functional and interdisciplinary collaboration.

BCIT and BCITSA sign SDG Accord

BCIT and the BCIT Student Association became a signatory to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Accord in 2022.

The SDG Accord includes the 17 goals set forth by the United Nations (UN) as a universal call to protect the planet, end poverty, and improve the lives and prospects of all humans.

A key requirement of the Accord is to openly and annually account for progress and to share BCIT’s experience and learning from implementing the SDGs.
