A brief description of the carbon sinks, including vendor, project source, verification program and contract timeframes (as applicable):

CSUDH does not purchase or count carbon offsets towards its greenhouse gas inventory.


Adjusted net Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions:
Performance year Baseline year
Adjusted net GHG emissions 5,424.13 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent 7,328.65 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or three-year periods):
Performance year Baseline year
Start date Jan. 1, 2019 Jan. 1, 1990
End date Dec. 31, 2019 Dec. 31, 1990

A brief description of when and why the GHG emissions baseline was adopted:

Greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for CSU campuses are currently based on percentage reduction from 1990 levels. Therefore, the adopted baseline year for our data is 1990.

Adjusted net Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions per unit of EUI-adjusted floor area, performance year:
0.00 MtCO2e / GSF

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

The Central Plant has made continuous efforts to support cutting edge energy efficiency technologies and retrofits, which has helped to stem energy consumption despite a growing campus population and increased demand for heating and cooling. It has also continually upgraded its equipment to support a general trend towards electrification as opposed to the use of natural gas in its long term equipment assets.
