Greenhouse Gas Reduction Roadmap

To support the ongoing culture of conservation and sustainability at Fanshawe, the College completed a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Roadmap and Action Plan. The goal of this action plan is to reduce the college’s GHG emissions by 30% below 2013 levels by 2030 and 80% by 2050.


Fanshawe’s GHG Reduction Strategy involves four key elements:

  • Conservation and demand management
  • Space optimization and net zero buildings
  • Fleet and facility electrification
  • Renewable energy

Waste Diversion


Waste diversion is a calculation of how much waste is produced that does not go to landfill. In 2019, 58.6% of total waste produced on campus was recycled, composted, or reused. Our goal is to increase our diversion rate every year, with a goal of zero waste to landfill by 2050.
