A brief description of when and why the GHG emissions baseline was adopted:

In 2018 the university published it's first Campus Sustainability Plan that established a baseline year (average data of 2013-2015). Due to change in leadership the data for how that was derived was lost, in 2021, an evaluation of the usefulness of that baseline year for tracking progress was completed. It was agreed that 2017 would be used as a new baseline for tracking progress due to availability, accuracy and usefulness of the data.

A brief description of the institution’s GHG emissions reduction initiatives:

The university acquired a 30kw solar array on a purchased building (Menomonee Building) in 2018 and installed a 10kw solar array on Engineering Hall in 2012. The university has emissions reduction targets and continues to strategically plan how to implement energy efficiency and large-scale renewable projects on campus to meet those targets.
