  1. Transportation reference info

    The attached file and following links are reference materials for the Transportation SWATeam, for developing draft objectives for the 2020 iCAP.

     

    Every few years iSEE submits data to the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), in the Sustainability Tracking and Assessment Reporting System (STARS).  Our campus is STARS gold, and we would like to aim for platinum.  This is a resource as you consider 2020 iCAP objectives.

     

     

    If you click on a link above and then choose “Credit Info,” you can see the data requirements for that item. 

  2. 2019 SWATeam Kickoff with Attached Power Point

    Good afternoon!

     

    It was wonderful meeting many of you at the iWG and SWATeam Kick Off event yesterday afternoon. Thank you so much for attending and for your participation. It will be a great year and your efforts are very much appreciated. Please find the slides and handout attached, and be sure to reach out if you have any questions.

     

    As a reminder, Sarthak Prasad from the Transportation team mentioned that it would be helpful if you could take this short bike survey.

     

    Thank you again for your hard work and dedication to making our campus a more sustainable place! I look forward to meeting with you in the near future.

  3. Trans011 Carbon Credit Fund - Submittal

    The Transportation SWATeam made the following recommendation: 

    "The Transportation SWATeam kindly requests that the university incentivize the switch of mode of transport for faculty through the something of the order of university carbon credit sales fund. This could be done by both penalizing those who choose to travel via air (a tax) and rewarding those who choose lower-emitting modes of transport (telecommunication, train, car, etc.) through a subsidy.

    As a SWATeam member mentioned, this program would work with reducing emissions from long-distance travel."

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation Trans010 Mode Share Survey with comments from Transportation SWATeam members.

    An iCAP Working Group Assessment of this recommendation began on July 2, 2019.

     

  4. Trans010 Mode Switch Survey - Submittal

    The Transportation SWATeam made the following recommendation: 

    "The Transportation SWATeam kindly requests the creation of a survey which would question faculty and staff who travel out of town for conferences or other university-sponsored activities on their decided mode of transportation. This survey would be voluntary and facilitated by the Transportation SWATeam. An example of a question would be something like: 'In the past year, what has been the main reason for the travel you selected?'"

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation Trans010 Mode Share Survey with comments from Transportation SWATeam members.
