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

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:

Florida Tech has utilized the SIMAP tool from the University of New Hampshire to complete the inventory and calculations required for a GHG emissions inventory.


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:

Our GHG team collected and had the data reviewed by the managers of several departments to ensure the data was correct. The report was then submitted to SIMAP for 3rd party verification.
