Environmental Services supports University departments seeking to meet their environmental obligations as prescribed by UBC Policy #6 – Environmental Protection Compliance and UBC Policy #9 – Hazardous Materials Management.
Through environmental audits, consultation, and the development of an Environmental Management System, Environmental Services provides the regulatory and technical guidance to:
- minimize the environmental impact of their operations;
- mitigate environmental risks; and
- prevent and control spills and releases to the environment.
Environmental Services staff also compile and submit environmental compliance reports to various agencies at the municipal, provincial and federal level.
