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

Does the institution's GHG emissions inventory include all Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions?:
Yes

Does the institution's GHG emissions inventory include all Scope 3 GHG emissions from any of the following categories?:
Yes or No
Business travel Yes
Commuting Yes
Purchased goods and services No
Capital goods No
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in Scope 1 or Scope 2 No
Waste generated in operations No

Does the institution's GHG emissions inventory include Scope 3 emissions from other categories?:
No

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

Campus Carbon Calculator emissions inventory tool. At the time managed by the National Wildlife Federation.. Clean Air Cool Planet’s Campus Carbon Calculator was used to collect and calculate the data. Measurements were reported in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (eCO2) released.


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?:
No

A brief description of the internal and/or external verification process:
---

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

In order to address the major issue of climate change, Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) joined with hundreds of other institutions of higher education by signing the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2010. An inventory of CCCC’s greenhouse gas emissions has been conducted as part of the college’s commitment to reducing GHG emissions.
CCCC has reported Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions data to the ACUPCC for the academic years ending in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
