"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Has the institution conducted a GHG emissions inventory within the previous three years that includes all Scope 1 and 2 emissions? :
Yes

A copy of the most recent GHG emissions inventory:
A brief description of the methodology and/or tool used to complete the GHG emissions inventory:

BCIT uses the Clean Government Reporting Tool called SoFi, which aggregates all utility data and allows to input paper and vehicle fuel data to calculate our annual greenhouse gas emissions using standard emission intensity factors.


Has the GHG emissions inventory been validated internally by personnel who are independent of the GHG accounting and reporting process and/or verified by an independent, external third party?:
Yes

A brief description of the GHG inventory verification process:

The GHG inventory is verified by the BCIT Chief Financial Officer, as well as by the British Columbia Provincial Government. Verification is part of the Clean Government Reporting Tool process.
