Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

Passed in February 2011, the GHG Reduction plan outlines the College’s plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 3% annually. We track our progress towards this goal annually by monitoring our GHG inventory online through University of New Hampshire Sustainability Institute's Campus Carbon Calculator.

Check out the data below or read our full report.

If you would like access the Excel-based calculator for research, a class project, or personal interest please reach out to the Sustainability Office to arrange for a brief tutorial.

Scope 1: On-site consumption of natural gas and fuel oil for heating campus

Scope 2: Emissions from purchased electricity

Scope 3: Emissions from College sponsored travel, employee commuting, JYA, off-site waste disposal
