Go Green with Us!

The BVC Green Committee is a volunteer group of staff, students, and faculty with the mission to advance environmental stewardship and champion a College-wide green culture. We create the College’s environmental plan, track progress, host green events, and advance environmental knowledge. Bow Valley College is a co-convener of the Calgary Postsecondary Sustainability Community of Practice. 

Currently, we are working on the following projects:

    • Reaching our college-wide waste diversion goal of 90% and reducing the contamination in our garbage and recycling bins
    • Promoting Bow Valley College’s Reusable Mug program.
    • Updating our procedures to embed sustainability into all purchasing decisions across the college (in conjunction with our Environmental Sustainability Policy).
    • Researching how Bow Valley College can become a Bee Campus, Fair Trade Campus, and plastic bag free campus.
    • Increasing the amount of plant-based meals sold at the college with our partners at Sodexo Canada.

Student members receive recognition on their co-curricular records for their involvement.
