Does the institution have a plan to mitigate its greenhouse gas emissions that meets the criteria for this credit?:

A brief summary of the climate plan’s long-term goals:

*5% reduction in Total Scopes 1, 2, 3 Emissions by 2015 (relative to baseline emissions in 2008)

*20% reduction in Total Scopes 1, 2, 3 Emissions by 2020

*40% reduction in Total Scope 3 Emissions by 2025

*Climate neutrality by 2040

A brief summary of the climate plan’s short-term goals:

The plan commits to reductions in three major areas of greenhouse gas emissions by 2015. The first commitment is a 1-3% reduction in emissions derived from direct stationary and mobile sources, namely the university's fleet vehicles. The second commitment is a 10-20% reduction in emissions through energy conservation and the purchasing of renewable energy. The third commitment is a 3-5% reduction in emissions through university initiatives with regard to non-energy generation, such as transport, waste, and water.

These reductions signify Phase 1 of the plan for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.
