A brief description of the carbon sinks, including vendor, project source, verification program and contract timeframes (as applicable):

We compost on site, but currently not enough to hit a MTCO2E in carbon sink


Adjusted net Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions:
Performance year Baseline year
Adjusted net GHG emissions 29,397.56 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent 28,169.89 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or three-year periods):
Performance year Baseline year
Start date Jan. 1, 2019 Jan. 1, 2016
End date Dec. 31, 2019 Dec. 31, 2016

A brief description of when and why the GHG emissions baseline was adopted:

This is the same baseline year as our energy baseline specified in the 2018 Strategic Sustainability Plan. It was chosen as the two reductions are linked.

Not all measurements were available for the baseline year (i.e. refrigerant use). When this was the case, we calculated the baseline year using the same numbers as the performance year. Not all fertilizer numbers were available for either baseline or performance year, these numbers were estimated based on typical athletic field care.
