Does the institution have a plan to mitigate its greenhouse gas emissions that meets the criteria for this credit?:
Yes

A brief summary of the climate plan’s long-term goals:

Our goals are set with reference to the 2008 GHG
inventory, in terms of absolute reductions of tons of
greenhouse gas emissions. These goals are modeled on
the New Jersey state greenhouse reduction goals.

Target Year. Cumulative Reduction of GHG. % to be Offset
2015 20% 0%
2020 35% 25%
2025 50% 50%
2030 65% 75%
2035 80% 100%

Achieving a 20% reduction in 4‐5 years is ambitious
but feasible given the recommendations in the Drew
University Energy Assessment. The
intention of the 2025 and 2035 targets, for example, is
that Drew reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 50%
and 80% respectively. The intention is also that by 2025,
50% of remaining emissions in that year will be offset. If
Drew does not achieve a 50% reduction of emissions by
2025, it will need to offset a larger amount of emissions.
By 2035, 100% of remaining emissions would be offset
and Drew University will achieve carbon neutrality.
