Additional documentation to support the submission :

On gross square footage: the physical boundaries for UC San Diego's climate/greenhouse gas reporting include our Hillcrest Medical Center, while the physical boundaries and reporting for our water, energy, and waste action are for our La Jolla campus. As a result, the GSF and WCU we use for these credits differ.

The UC Office of the President and its annual sustainability data collection and reporting from campuses requires reporting in OGSF50 (which includes 50% of the outside), so we use that for IC-2 and our water action plan.

Other GSF/data boundaries contacts: Kirk Belles (Campus Planning); Valerie Fanning (EH&S); Michelle Perez (Utilities and Sustainability)
