OP-1: Emissions Inventory and Disclosure

Status Score Responsible Party
Complete 1.25 / 3.00
"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

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:
A tool was created for GHG Accounting by Hammerschlag, LLC. The tool, which is actually used for all three University of Washington campuses, has been refined to only represent the Bothell Campus. The tool uses methodologies listed in the IPCC's GHG Protocol and EPA guidance to calculate carbon dioxide equivalents.

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:
The 2020 GHG Inventory has not been third-party verified.

Documentation to support the GHG inventory verification process:
---

Gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
Weight in MTCO2e
Stationary combustion 570 Metric tons of CO2 equivalent
Other sources (mobile combustion, process emissions, fugitive emissions) 0 Metric tons of CO2 equivalent

Total gross Scope 1 GHG emissions, performance year:
570 Metric tons of CO2 equivalent

Gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year (market-based):
Weight in MTCO2e
Imported electricity 2,854 Metric tons of CO2 equivalent
Imported thermal energy 0 Metric tons of CO2 equivalent

Total gross Scope 2 GHG emissions, performance year:
2,854 Metric tons of CO2 equivalent
