Adjusted net Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions:
Performance year Baseline year
Adjusted net GHG emissions 3,153 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent 4,293 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, 2018 Jan. 1, 1991
End date Dec. 31, 2018 Dec. 31, 1991

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 per AB32, California's Global Warming Solutions Act. As institutional data for weighted campus users is not available for 1990, Stanislaus State adopted baseline year for 1991.


Figures needed to determine “Weighted Campus Users”:
Performance year Baseline year
Number of students resident on-site 680 310
Number of employees resident on-site 3 1
Number of other individuals resident on-site 1 0
Total full-time equivalent student enrollment 9,462.70 4,091.30
Full-time equivalent of employees 994 549
Full-time equivalent of students enrolled exclusively in distance education 163.20 0
Weighted Campus Users 7,891.88 3,557.98

Adjusted net Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions per weighted campus user:
Performance year Baseline year
Adjusted net Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions per weighted campus user 0.40 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent 1.21 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Percentage reduction in adjusted net Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions per weighted campus user from baseline:
66.89

Gross floor area of building space, performance year:
1,287,415 Gross Square Feet

Floor area of energy intensive building space, performance year:
Floor area
Laboratory space 52,616 Square Feet
Healthcare space 4,746 Square Feet
Other energy intensive space 26,598 Square Feet

EUI-adjusted floor area, performance year:
1,428,737 Gross Square Feet

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:

· Replaced indoor T8 fluorescent lights with LED in some buildings

· Replaced outdoor HPS lights with LED at some parking lots and streets

· Implemented central plant MBCx project to optimize the performance of central plant and related chilled and hot water systems

· Implemented Bizzini Hall MBCx project to optimize the performance of the building HVAC system

· Implemented ventilation optimization project on the third floor of Naraghi Hall of Science to reduce ventilation flows through fume hoods during low-use or no–use periods and meet code requirement

· Installed a sophisticated irrigation water control system to reduce water usage

· Installed a water filtration system for cooling tower operation. Cooling tower make up water is reclaimed storm water. Furthermore, the blow down water is collected back to the irrigation system

· Installed water efficient faucets and shower heads

· Installed 250 kW Photo-Voltaic system on the roof of Science I building

· Installed 30 kW Photo-Voltaic system at Irrigation Station

· Installed 270 kW system Photo-Voltaic on the roof of Cafe

· Installed seven EV charge stations

· Purchased 29 electric vehicles

· Summer and Winter Intercession classes are scheduled to allow shut-down of the HVAC system in some buildings and zones during low-use or no-use periods
