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:

Inputted information from natural gas usage and purchased electricity invoices into California Electronic Greenhouse Gas Reporting Tool (Cal e-GGRT) to assist with completion of GHG emission inventory for Scope 1 emissions from stationary combustion and Scope 2 emissions from imported electricity. Fuel dispensing logs and refrigerant purchasing records were utilized to calculate inventory of Scope 1 emissions from other sources. Applied EPA GHG emissions factors dated 03/09/2018 and Global Warming Potential (GWP) values posted on California Air Resources Board (CARB) website to the diesel fuel throughput to calculate CO2e. The refrigerant CO2e was obtained by applying GWP values posted on CARB website.


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:

Yorke Engineering, LLC is an independent third party that assists CSUF Environmental Health & Safety with air quality and environmental compliance. Please see attached "CSUF CARB GHG Rpt Wkbk RY2019".
