Memorial University of Newfoundland is committed to: taking immediate and decisive action against one of the most globally urgent crises of our time - climate change.

Working from a collaborative and comprehensive approach to the complexity of sustainability, Memorial uses its resources and influence to make large and significant strides toward its environmental goals.
The Sustainability and Climate Action Office engages in a targeted and strategic approach of implementing climate action by collaborating within Memorial’s operations, finances, policies, and procedures on opportunities for producing change while elevating the landscape of sustainability.
