Metric: Total Campus GHG Emissions
Greenhouse gas emissions are generally categorized into three “scopes.” Scope 1 consists of emissions resulting from on-campus activities that we have direct control over and includes combustion at Abbott Power Plant, fleet emissions, and agricultural emissions. Scope 2 consists of emissions resulting from purchased electricity, which we have a moderate degree of control over. For example, we could reduce Scope 2 emissions by entering into power purchase agreements with low-carbon energy sources such as wind farms, biomass power plants, or nuclear power plants. Scope 3 consists of other emissions that occur off campus as a result of campus activities; these include commuting, air travel, solid waste, and the effects of purchasing goods and services.
The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment collects detailed usage information from Facilities & Services, the College of ACES, OBFS, and other relevant campus stakeholders. The information is then input to the online carbon calculator program called SIMAP, and the results are exported to share with Second Nature.
This metric is the gross emissions total, as reported to Second Nature, online at http://reporting.secondnature.org/institution/detail!1375##1375.
