On February 22, 2008, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign became a signatory to the ACUPCC. We are currently one of more than six-hundred Colleges and Universities that are participating in this endeavor. The commitment requires annual reporting that includes updated greenhouse gas emissions inventories on even years and progress reports on odd years. Illinois' progress report was submitted on January 15, 2013 and can be viewed here.
In the future, Illinois will be required to submit updated GHG emissions inventories and progress reports on alternating years. The first GHG emissions inventory was submitted in 2012 and the first progress report was submitted in 2013. As reports become available, they will be publicly available on the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) and ACUPCC websites.
