Carbon and Energy Management paper earns award nomination

For the past six years, students in UNBC’s Carbon and Energy Management class gained practical experiences working with local businesses to help them reduce their emissions. Now, a paper co-authored by UNBC researchers about the impact of the course made the short list for an Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) award.

Earley, Dr. Sinead

I work at the intersection of environment and policy, primarily in the Canadian context. My research interests integrate the social and physical sciences, taking a critical approach to resource management, climate change, environmental policy, and (neo)colonial systems of governance. Teaching interests parallel my research activities, and in the classroom I stress the importance of publicly engaged education and experiential/service learning.

Prospective Careers

What can I do with my degree?

Alumni of the Environmental and Sustainability Studies program report high satisfaction with their degrees. We are pleased to see them succeed. Some of the positions they hold include:

Student Achievements

Since 2015, students have completed 53 carbon inventories for local businesses through our Low-Carbon Transitions course, following international ISO 14064 standards. Students took the fundamental greenhouse gas accounting skills they learned in the classroom, created carbon footprints for businesses, and made recommendations for emissions reductions and energy savings.
