Commitment to the Environment

Given the sweeping change and unprecedented circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic and yet another lockdown, it’s easy to overlook some other issues that would otherwise be in the forefront of our minds. The environment and sustainability are two such issues that have been rapidly gaining traction on a global level in recent years but have been deprioritised under the spread of the coronavirus. However, here at Brampton College, we want to focus our attention on positive action when it comes to the environment. Research reveals that environmental pollution has been minimized as a result of the global lockdown and therefore, COVID-19 represents something of a generational opportunity to re-think the way that we live our lives.

We want to seize this opportunity and make 2021, the Year of Sustainability. With the help of the Brampton Green Committee, we are hoping to increase students’ awareness of environmental issues and engage them with a number of both inward and outward facing initiatives. To kick-start our plans, we have already instructed an external agency to conduct a carbon footprint assessment, and we will be working with them to move towards becoming carbon-neutral.

We look forward to sharing the rest of the college’s green initiatives soon and the progress we’re making as they develop. Here’s to a collaborative effort for a better environment and a positive outlook for 2021.
