Has the institution conducted a GHG emissions inventory within the previous three years that includes all Scope 1 and 2 emissions? :
Yes

A copy of the most recent GHG emissions inventory:
A brief description of the methodology and/or tool used to complete the GHG emissions inventory:

UMBC uses a modified version of the Clean Air-Cool Planet Campus Carbon Calculator.


Has the GHG emissions inventory been validated internally by personnel who are independent of the GHG accounting and reporting process and/or verified by an independent, external third party?:
No

A brief description of how the institution accounted for its Scope 3 emissions:

Business Travel - Based on tracking the airplane miles for flights sponsored by UMBC
Commuters-Based on tracking registered vehicles on campus and distances from zip codes
Waste- Based on tons collected by waste haulers
Other Sources (i.e. agricultural)- based on fertilizers
