Energy Management and Sustainable Operations (EMSO) leads and facilitates sustainability projects at UAlberta. Often partnering with university departments, faculties or external stakeholders, we look for new ways to reduce the university’s environmental impact. Our goal is to help UAlberta remain a leader in sustainable operations—now and in the future.
From our comprehensive energy management program and our greenhouse gas inventory, to our water reduction plan, our projects
have a direct positive impact that reduces resource use at UAlberta.
