In November 2011, Capilano University Sunshine Coast Campus was awarded a Platinum status for demonstrating innovative and responsible water use. As part of the Sunshine Coast Regional District’s (SCRD) water conservation program, the SCRD facilitates the Industrial-Commercial-Institutional (ICI) Awards program that recognizes businesses in the community who are going that extra step in becoming more water efficient.
Capilano University’s Platinum award is a result of meeting a variety of criteria set by the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) including having water conservation notifications in washrooms, updated plumbing and landscape contracts, water efficient toilets in bathrooms, faucet aerators on taps, rainwater harvesting plans,installation of a rain sensor for outdoor water use, and minimizing or eliminating landscape irrigation.
