Key Objective: 8.7 Local Offsets Program
As stated in the Transportation chapter, we are interested in pursuing local carbon offset programs, in part to mitigate greenhouse gases (GHG) generated as a result of university air travel but primarily as a way to educate faculty and staff about air emissions.
In collaboration with local communities, we plan to adhere to the following steps in pursuit of a results-driven carbon offsets program:
By the end of FY22, inventory available peer institutions and offset programs through a literature review.
By the end of FY23, develop a plan with wide stakeholder engagement both on and off campus.
During FY24, initiate the finalized plan.
