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:

For the 2021 GHG Inventory, SOU worked internally to collect, analyze, and report GHG emissions. This is gathered from a number of sources including fleet manager, utility manager, transport survey, solar monitoring, and billing. The campus uses the Sustainability Indicator Management & Analysis Platform (SIMAP) carbon accounting tool each year to complete the inventory.


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?:
Yes

A brief description of the GHG inventory verification process:
