Carleton University has been recognized as a top performer in the 2022 Sustainable Campus Index, achieving a top 10 ranking in the impact areas of Water and Wellbeing & Work. The recognition follows Carleton’s Gold AASHE STARS assessment, which was achieved earlier this year.

“Carleton is committed to being a leader in sustainability and we have strong engagement and collaboration across campus,” says Carleton President Benoit-Antoine Bacon. “There is still a lot of work to be done, but we can collectively take pride in this important recognition of our achievements to date.”

“This recognition confirms that our holistic approach to sustainability at Carleton is on the mark,” says Lorraine Dyke, Vice-President (Finance and Administration). “There is a lot to look forward to as our program grows to enhance sustainability.”

“Congratulations to Carleton University for their incredible sustainability accomplishments,” said AASHE’s Executive Director Meghan Fay Zahniser. “Upon reading about the innovative and high-impact initiatives within this report, I’m encouraged that the global sustainability transformation that we desperately need is, in fact, happening.”

A publication from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), the Sustainable Campus Index recognizes top-performing sustainable colleges and universities overall and in 17 impact areas, as measured by the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS).
