A brief description of the carbon sinks, including vendor, project source, verification program and contract timeframes (as applicable):

The college owns several nature preserves. The native forests on these preserves actively sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Pre-consumer food waste from the college dining hall is frequently composted in the campus Organic Garden.


Adjusted net Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions:
Performance year Baseline year
Adjusted net GHG emissions 4251.78 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent 6894 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or three-year periods):
Performance year Baseline year
Start date July 1, 2017 July 1, 2008
End date June 30, 2018 June 30, 2009

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

The baseline year adopted was 2008 because it is the year at which we started completing a periodic greenhouse gas inventories.

Full-time equivalent of employees 287 240
Full-time equivalent of students enrolled exclusively in distance education 0 0
Weighted Campus Users 847.25 710.50

Adjusted net Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions per weighted campus user:
Performance year Baseline year
Adjusted net Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions per weighted campus user 5.02 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent 9.70 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Percentage reduction in adjusted net Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions per weighted campus user from baseline:
48.28
