Sustainability at Sheridan

Sheridan is committed to integrating sustainability into all aspects of teaching, learning, energy, waste and operations.

We reduced our landfill waste by 26% in 2014–2015 (compared to the previous year), and we're on track to become a Zero Waste campus by 2020.

Help us achieve our sustainability goals! Here are just a few initiatives you can support.

Did you know?

Sheridan’s organic waste is being sent to Harvest Power Plant where the material is converted to electricity and fertilizer. In 2014, the amount of organic waste produced each month was enough to power 96 Ontario homes a day.

LED Lights

New LED lights have been installed in different parts of the Trafalgar and Davis campuses. They use up to 80-90% less energy than conventional fixtures.

Centrifugal Fans

Centrifugal fans in some buildings on campus, such as Trafalgar’s E Wing and G Wing, are used to control air circulation indoors. By reducing the speed of the centrifugal fans by half, which does not affect air circulation, energy has been cut down to 12.5% of the original amount.

Green Printing

Sheridan reduced the use of over 10.5 million sheets of paper over the span of 3 years.
