A brief description of the plan(s) to advance sustainability in Transportation:

The Climate Action Plan identifies goals and objectives for promoting sustainable transportation. Temple’s transportation-related emissions represent 21% or approximately 45,000 tons of the university’s FY 2008 greenhouse gas emissions. Commuting is a significant emissions source: approximately one million miles are driven by single-occupant Temple commuters on a weekly basis, including Philadelphia and Ambler campuses. According to a university survey conducted in December 2007, an estimated 40% of all students, faculty and staff commuters drive alone. On the other hand, 41% of Temple’s commuters do not use a car at any point in their commute, instead taking public transit, bicycling or walking.

The recommendations developed by the Transportation Committee were based on an understanding of the three principal ways in which GHG emissions can be reduced in the transportation sector:

1) Reduce motorized travel associated with the university’s mission, including student, staff and faculty commuting, operations of the university’s vehicle fleet, and travel to off-campus sites for university business and academic meetings and conferences.
2) Increase the efficiency of motorized travel by reducing single-occupancy vehicle travel, increasing shared travel and non-motorized travel, and encouraging the purchase of higher fuel-efficiency vehicles.
3) Reduce the carbon intensity of fuels for motorized travel by encouraging the purchase by commuters and university vehicle fleet managers of vehicles that operate on compressed natural gas, biodiesel, electric batteries and other lower-carbon content sources of energy.


The measurable objectives, strategies and timeframes included in the Transportation plan(s):

Project Title Priority Parking and Lower Parking Rates
Project Description: Priority parking and lower rates would be given to low-GHG
emission vehicles (those with combined city-highway fuel economy ratings of 35 miles per gallon or higher) and motorcycles. Discounts would be based upon revenue-neutral
pricing, which raises parking fees for non-fuel-efficient vehicles a small amount in order to fund deep discounts for the comparatively smaller number of high-fuel-efficiency vehicles used by Temple commuters. To implement such a program would require an awareness campaign to inform commuters of Climate Action Plan, the incentives, redrawing of the parking garage layout to create more priority parking spots, and additional signage. Similar discounts could be applied to vehicles used for carpooling.
Timeline Short-term goal (i.e., by June 30, 2011) Funding No funding required
Coordination Internal university coordination Estimated GHG Reduction 4,661 MTCO2E (10.3% of FY2008 transportation emissions) Assuming a 50% conversion of commuter vehicles to a fuel economy of 35 miles per gallon. commuter vehicles to a fuel
economy of 35 miles per gallon.

Project Title University Transit Pass Program
Project Description: This program would be negotiated with the metropolitan public
transit authority, SEPTA, to provide reduced fee transit passes for all registered students. The program could be funded through student fees, university administration contributions or a combination.
Funding Little or no university funding required
Coordination Coordination with public transit agency
Estimated GHG Reduction 2,336 MTCO2E (5.2% of FY2008 transportation emissions)

Project Title Offsets of Air Travel
Project Description: This recommendation is a combination of university-related air
travel recommendations including (1) providing information about the carbon footprint of air travel to travelers, (2) establishing a University Carbon Fund based on voluntary purchase of carbon offsets, (3) establishing a carbon travel credits policy to enforce
limits on university departments or offices, (4) establishing minimum miles or travel time limits, and (5) increasing Temple University teleconference capabilities at the university.
Funding No funding or one-time funding (Carbon Fund and expansion of
teleconferencing)
Coordination Internal university coordination
Estimated GHG Reduction 7,950 MTCO2E (17.6% of FY2008 transportation emissions)

A brief description of the plan(s) to advance sustainability in Waste:

In May 2010, Temple University adopted its Climate Action Plan, which delineated the university’s interim goals for reducing its carbon footprint and infusing sustainability into the campus culture. The Climate Action Plan addressed the role of waste minimization and recycling as part of its comprehensive efforts to reduce the university’s carbon footprint. Since the adoption of the plan, Temple has achieved a 10% reduction in its greenhouse gas emissions derived from solid waste. While this is a noteworthy success, the university’s recycling rate continues to remain at 30%, with only 20.3% of core materials being recycled. Core materials include mixed paper, cardboard and aluminum, glass and plastic beverage containers.

This report was prepared in response to the Climate Action Plan, which recommended the creation of a Waste Minimization and Recycling Committee that is tasked with identifying strategies for achieving tangible reductions in waste and increasing Temple’s recycling rate to 40% by 2015. This report lays out the committee’s findings and recommendations.

This report reviews the goals established in the Climate Action Plan, provides an overview of Temple’s existing waste minimization and recycling practices, and examines the successes and challenges of the current program. The report then sets forth a series of recommendations aimed at increasing the university’s recycling rate while minimizing its waste stream.

This report identifies ten action areas to be considered when developing a comprehensive recycling and waste minimization program. The areas include:

1. Education, Training and Outreach. Temple University has an extensive recycling program and an array of waste minimization initiatives. However, many students, staff and faculty are still unclear on the materials that can be recycled on campus or what they can do to reduce waste. This section outlines educational programming, training and outreach aimed at increasing recycling rates among the Temple community and minimizing the waste generated.

2. Labeling and Containers. This section reviews the types of containers utilized on campus, their multi-material sorting methods and the consistency in the labeling of recycling receptacles on campus.
3. Outdoor Recycling Facilities. The outdoor recycling program has a strong infrastructure on campus. This section explores opportunities to further strengthen the program, including reviewing the consistency and distribution of the outdoor recycling containers on campus.
4. Expansion of Plastic Recycling. This section looks at the breadth of the university’s plastic recycling policy and ways to build on synergies with and successes of the City of Philadelphia’s recycling program.
5. Institutionalized Reuse and Recycling of Surplus Inventory. Temple University generates a large amount of surplus inventory due to its size and its need to be on the cutting edge as a research facility. This section investigates new opportunities for recycling and waste diversion of surplus inventory, such as clinical and laboratory materials, major appliances, furniture, research equipment, and electronics.
6. Waste Minimization and Recycling at Special Events. University departments host a variety of special events throughout the year. This section looks at ways to increase recycling and minimize waste associated with these events.
7. Purchasing. This section explores opportunities for the university to minimize its waste and increase its recycling rate through its purchasing policies, procedures and practices.
8. Housing and Residential Life. Temple’s residential community is comprised of approximately 5,200 students and is expected to grow in the future. This section suggests ways to increase the recycling rate in the residence halls and promote waste minimization. Areas addressed include outreach and education, containers and facilities, moving and composting.
9. Food Waste and Dining Facilities. Each year, Temple diverts 165.60 tons of food waste from entering the waste stream. This section highlights opportunities to increase the amount of food waste diverted and to minimize the amount of dining related waste generated through infrastructure changes, recovery programs and education and outreach.
10. Harnessing Technological Advancements. Technological improvements and increased availability present new methods for students, staff and faculty to reduce the amount of waste they produce. This section looks at the promotion of existing technologies as a tool for reducing waste levels.

The report sets forth recommendations for each of the above identified action areas. The recommendations can be implemented in four phases: immediately (completion by the end of calendar year 2011), short-term (completion by June 2012), mid-term (completion by June 2015), and long-term (completion by June 2020). The implementation of the recommendations will require university departments to forge new partnerships and institute institutional procedural change. Additionally, while the goal of the report is to develop programs and practices that are revenue neutral, there will be some upfront costs to implement the recommendations.


The measurable objectives, strategies and timeframes included in the Waste plan(s):

The Climate Action Plan established a goal of reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions derived from land-filled solid waste by 10% by 2015 relative to the 2006 baseline level. The Climate Action Plan estimates that Temple emitted 5,229 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTCO2E) in 2006. A 10% decrease is equivalent to 529 MTCO2E. The university successfully achieved that reduction in 2008. In fact, between 2006 and 2010, Temple reduced its emissions associated with solid waste by 19%.

Although it reached its 10% greenhouse gas emissions reduction benchmark, the Climate Action Plan identified additional waste minimization and recycling recommendations, which are listed below:

• Increase the recycling rate from 32% to 40% by 2015;
• Increase outdoor recycling opportunities to ensure that every trash can is accompanied by a recycling can;
• Explore composting of food waste;
• Review opportunities in the food service areas to replace disposable dinnerware and eating utensils in all dining halls;
• Review business practices that contribute to excess waste; and,
• Engage students in residence halls to reduce waste.

It should be noted that the Climate Action Plan did not identify a specific target for the reduction of trash. A goal and benchmark system for waste reduction may be something that the Waste Minimization and Recycling Committee considers as a way to evaluate the success of the university’s efforts.

This report will explore opportunities on campus to increase its recycling rate to 40% while minimizing waste generated by operations and individual community members.
