Hosting your own event? Make it sustainable!

BCIT events are an excellent opportunity to explore sustainability. From reducing waste to contributing positively to the community, hosting a sustainable event presents challenges and opportunities for creative environmentally friendly solutions. BCIT is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of campus events through:

  • Decreasing the amount of solid waste produced by the event;
  • Reducing energy and water consumption at the event;
  • Minimizing or off-setting harmful emissions resulting from vehicular transportation and energy consumption associated with the event;
  • Disposing of solid and liquid waste in an environmentally responsible manner;
  • Eliminating the use of harmful chemicals at or for the event;
  • Contributing positively to the community; and
  • Increasing the event experience for visitors, exhibitors and organizers.
