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:

CPS Energy emissions conversions


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 the GHG inventory verification process:
---

Documentation to support the GHG inventory verification process:
Gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
Weight in MTCO2e
Stationary combustion 14,802 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Other sources (mobile combustion, process emissions, fugitive emissions) 1,366 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
16,168 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year (market-based):
Weight in MTCO2e
Imported electricity 81,297 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent
Imported thermal energy 0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year:
81,297 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Gross GHG emissions from biogenic sources, performance year:
0 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Does the GHG emissions inventory include Scope 3 emissions from the following sources?:
Yes or No Weight in MTCO2e
Business travel --- ---
Commuting --- ---
Purchased goods and services --- ---
Capital goods --- ---
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in Scope 1 or Scope 2 --- ---
Waste generated in operations --- ---
Other sources Yes 1,366 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Total Scope 3 GHG emissions, performance year:
1,366 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

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

Waste is unknown. Sewer, for the purposes of billing, is calculated as a percentage (70%) of total water use because the campus is not sub-metered for irrigation. 30% is considered irrigation.


Has the institution completed an inventory within the previous three years to quantify its air pollutant emissions?:
Yes

Annual weight of emissions for::
Weight of Emissions
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) 241.50 Tons
Sulfur oxides (SOx) 275 Tons
Carbon monoxide (CO) 26.80 Tons
Particulate matter (PM) 24,459 Tons
Ozone (O3) ---
Lead (Pb) ---
Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) ---
Ozone-depleting compounds (ODCs) ---
Other standard categories of air emissions identified in permits and/or regulations ---

Do the air pollutant emissions figures provided include the following sources?:
Yes or No
Major stationary sources Yes
Area sources No
Mobile sources ---
Commuting No
Off-site electricity production No

A brief description of the methodology(ies) the institution used to complete its air emissions inventory:

UTSA Office of Facilities maintains a emissions inventory for reporting use of our 2 Chiller Plants and building operations.


Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions from purchased electricity (location-based):
---

Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions from imported thermal energy (location-based) :
---
