Humber College
Humber College building's green roof increases the efficiency of the building and contributes to ecological diversity

Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why Humber College was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2016):

  • Humber College promotes a unique recycling program designed to help everyone easily understand the College's many recycling initiatives, including recognizable characters that appear on posters, bins, videos, online and ads on HumberTV -- the College also hosts collection drives for batteries, used writing instruments, light bulbs, HVAC filters, metals, wood and more
  • Humber College installed a number of water bottle filling stations to reduce the sale of water bottles -- the popular stations even track the number of plastic bottles saved
  • Humber College maintains an organic garden and greenhouse, cultivating its plants without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers -- each spring students and staff are invited to an annual plant sale which includes annuals, vegetables and herbs -- the College is also installing bee hives at two of its campuses to create greater awareness of the key role that honey bees occupy in our food chain
Humber College provides a carpool parking discount and preferred parking spaces for participating employees and students
