Penn State completes an annual GHG emissions inventory for 22 campus locations. It is a comprehensive inventory including direct and indirect emissions across multiple sectors. Calculations are made using an Excel spreadsheet emissions calculator developed in 2004 for Penn State, University Park Campus, by a graduate student. It was expanded to the Commonwealth Campuses in 2006 with updates to sectors and emissions factors in 2009.
