Kingston, Ont.’s Queen’s University has completed its first objective towards its goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2040. It has already reduced emissions by 35 per cent between 2008 and 2020.

Its district energy project included the replacement of its former steam heating system for a more efficient boiler heating system. Over the past five years, buildings have been upgraded to maximize energy use with improvements to ventilation, lighting and water conservation.

Emissions at the campus have been reduced by about 20,000 tonnes since 2008.
