Abstract: The Sustainable Resource Strategy allows the University of British Columbia a unique opportunity to take a leadership role in community resource planning. The Strategy addresses four broad water and energy resource questions for the UBC campus. It outlines where the University is now with energy and water consumption. It shows where the campus will be with water and energy use and supply if current trends continue. It poses the question of where the University wants to be in terms of energy and water supply and demand and sets long-terms targets. Finally, the Sustainable Resource Strategy outlines a path to follow in order to meet these goals, by outlining a flexible resource portfolio of resource options. High priority options include demand management for transportation, renewable energy sources for buildings and infrastructure, and alternative water supply sources. This document was prepared with input from two stakeholder workshops. A series of interviews were also conducted for the final chapter that focused on the challenges and strategies for implementation of the completed Sustainable Resource Strategy. The Strategy has a number of benefits for the University including improved health and safety, improved air quality, local economic development, links with research and development, and meets many of the goals of the UBCTrek 2000 vision document.
