A brief description of the institution’s GHG emissions reduction initiatives:

We strive to reduce all emissions related to campus activities. The California State University Chancellor's Office, along with state mandated goals provides a framework for reductions standards. We monitor electricity, steam, and natural gas monthly to keep track of our overall energy usage. Efforts like delamping and retrofitting old interior and exterior lighting to more efficient bulbs have helped us conserve electricity. We are also looking forward to installing a large solar array on campus in the near future. New buildings are built to LEED standards, contributing to lower energy usage throughout their lifetime. In existing buildings, we employ metering and commissioning techniques to save energy wherever possible. We also engage the campus community in sustainable behaviors and encourage people to turn off appliances and lights and to drive less.
