"---" 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:

Operational control approach was used to determine the organization boundaries.The inventory for FY18 is in accordance with the IPPC’s Fifth
Assessment Report global warming potential (GWP) values, with a custom fuel mix for scope 2 emissions.


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:

Utility data is collected by Facilities staff and analysed by staff from the Institute for Sustainable Practices. All GHG data is compiled in SIMAP, compared to previous years and reviewed for possible errors. The methodology and results is later reviewed the LCC's Sustainability Committee before publishing the yearly report following the IPCC's fifth assessment report version for GWP.


Documentation to support the GHG inventory verification process:
Gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
Weight in MTCO2e
Stationary combustion 2,288.21 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Other sources (mobile combustion, process emissions, fugitive emissions) 284.38 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
---

Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year (market-based):
Weight in MTCO2e
Imported electricity 325 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Imported thermal energy 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year:
325 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 1,021.77 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Commuting Yes 24,769.13 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Purchased goods and services No 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Capital goods No 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in Scope 1 or Scope 2 No 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Waste generated in operations Yes 958.46 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Other sources No 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total Scope 3 GHG emissions, performance year:
26,749.36 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

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

For scope 3 emissions, commuting to and from campus from students, faculty and staff was calculated using surveys and ridership data of public transportation. Air travel for college business is also accounted for in total dollar amount as well as total waste sent to the landfill.

Carbon monoxide (CO) 1.50 Tons
Particulate matter (PM) 0.05 Tons
Ozone (O3) 0 Tons
Lead (Pb) 0 Tons
