Criteria

Institution has a local offsets program through which the institution offsets its greenhouse gas emissions by implementing projects that reduce GHG emissions in the local community.  For example, a local offsets program may engage students in weatherizing homes in the surrounding community.  As part of the arrangement with the homeowner, the institution would “own” the emissions reductions that result from the program.
