Director of Sustainability and Campus Sustainability Planner

Does the institution have a local offsets program through which the institution seeks to offset its greenhouse gas emissions by implementing projects that reduce GHG emissions in the local community?:
A brief description of the program:
UC Davis collaborates in many ways with the local community to measure and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. One example, described by a student guest writer for the campus sustainability blog, is the Energy Service Corps, in which UC Davis students and local community members teamed up to provide education about the benefits of energy efficiency and help people make changes in their residences (such as sealing cracks, installing weatherstripping, and changing out lightbulbs) to save energy and thus reduce greenhouse gases.
The website URL where information about the program is available:
While UC Davis collaborates in many ways with the local community to measure and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the campus does not count any ensuing reductions as offsets, since they accrue to the local community.
