"---" 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:

MSU Sustainability Department and a student researcher reviewed several GHG tools and selected SIMAP as the preferred tool to allow for effective entry and tracking of data while supporting benchmarking and goal setting practices for ongoing reductions. Energy data was collected by the Facilities Energy Management Department.


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:
---
