Simon Fraser University has joined the International Sustainable Campus Network, a global network of nearly 100 higher education institutions in 30 countries. An SFU release states that network institutions work collaboratively to “increase sustainability best practices in their campus operations, research and teaching.” The release adds that SFU has forwarded several on-campus sustainability initiatives, including the establishment of a high-efficiency heating plant; a robot that identifies recycling from trash and instructs users on how to sustainably dispose of their waste; and SFU Fair Trade, which ensures that products sold at SFU meet ethical standards such as equitable compensation for farmers and workers.
