A recent study found that business-related air travel emissions at UBC total 26,333 to 31,685 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year, equivalent to 63 to 73 per cent of the total annual emissions from the operation of the Vancouver UBC campus. 

2018 Wall Scholar Malabika Pramanik references this study and urges fellow scholars to talk about the necessity of a cultural shift within academia in this op-ed published by The Tyee.
