UC Davis has conducted and verified GHG emissions inventories annually from 2005-2011, and is underway with the 2012 inventory, which will be verified and submitted to The Climate Registry, where UC Davis is a member. UC Davis has inventoried all six categories of GHG since 2006. The campus reports Scopes 1 and 2 in The Climate Registry inventory, and Scopes 1, 2 and 3 in the campus Climate Action Plan reporting, and in ACUPCC reporting. The Climate Action Plan GHG inventory includes Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, with Scope 3 including air travel, commuting, study abroad travel, travel related to athletics, and business related air travel and commuting. Through 2011, UC Davis has accounted for solid waste disposal in Scope 1 emissions because the campus operated a landfill and captures the methane gas for use in boilers.
