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:

A scope 1 and 2 audit was conducted by an external consultant in 2020 during an energy audit. The audit goal was to identify energy and GHG saving opportunities to reach carbon neutrality by 2040.


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:

An external consulting firm produced the inventory, and it was validated by a team at the infrastructure department.


Documentation to support the GHG inventory verification process:
---

Gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
Weight in MTCO2e
Stationary combustion 1,001 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Other sources (mobile combustion, process emissions, fugitive emissions) 1.37 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
1,002.37 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year (market-based):
Weight in MTCO2e
Imported electricity 40 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Imported thermal energy 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year:
40 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Gross GHG emissions from biogenic sources, performance year:
0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Does the GHG emissions inventory include Scope 3 emissions from the following sources?:
Yes or No Weight in MTCO2e
Business travel --- ---
Commuting --- ---
Purchased goods and services --- ---
Capital goods --- ---
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in Scope 1 or Scope 2 --- ---
Waste generated in operations --- ---

Total Scope 3 GHG emissions, performance year:
0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

A brief description of how the institution accounted for its Scope 3 emissions:

No Scope 3 GHG emissions are made public for now.


Has the institution completed an inventory within the previous three years to quantify its air pollutant emissions?:
Yes

Annual weight of emissions for::
Weight of Emissions
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) 0 Tonnes
Sulfur oxides (SOx) 0 Tonnes
Carbon monoxide (CO) 0 Tonnes
Particulate matter (PM) 0 Tonnes
Ozone (O3) 0 Tonnes
Lead (Pb) 0 Tonnes
Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) 0 Tonnes
Ozone-depleting compounds (ODCs) 0.05 Tonnes
Other standard categories of air emissions identified in permits and/or regulations 0 Tonnes

Do the air pollutant emissions figures provided include the following sources?:
Yes or No
Major stationary sources Yes
Area sources Yes
Mobile sources No
Commuting No
Off-site electricity production No

A brief description of the methodology(ies) the institution used to complete its air emissions inventory:

No air pollutant emissions inventory are required, except of ODS (from halocarbon lost) - The emissions are limited to gas fired heating system that include a combustion verification annually to ensure there are no polluants emitted, and 2 backup-generator
