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:

We use the Clean Air, Cool Planet GHG Reporting Tool.
The overview is available here: http://reporting.secondnature.org/institution/detail!1513##1513

Details are available here: http://reporting.secondnature.org/ghg/ghg-public!3878

The annual progress evaluation for year starting 2015 is available here: http://reporting.secondnature.org/ape/ape-public!130


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 GHG inventory verification process:
---

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

Gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
Weight in MTCO2e
Stationary combustion 468.06 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Other sources (mobile combustion, process emissions, fugitive emissions) 166.57 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

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

Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year (market-based):
Weight in MTCO2e
Imported electricity 13,038 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Imported thermal energy 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year:
13,038 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 Yes 146.44 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Commuting Yes 2,030.80 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Purchased goods and services No ---
Capital goods No ---
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in Scope 1 or Scope 2 --- ---
Waste generated in operations Yes 111.80 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Other sources --- ---

Total Scope 3 GHG emissions, performance year:
2,289.04 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

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

Business travel is calculated based on our air travel miles purchased though our procurement department. Waste generated is calculated by our waste hauler billings with weights. Commuting is based on our traffic study and analysis of the zipcodes of where our populations commute from in relation to our campus.


Has the institution completed an inventory within the previous three years to quantify its air pollutant emissions?:
No
