CLIMATE CHANGE & ENERGY

 

Please note: Unless otherwise indicated, when providing data about greenhouse gas emissions levels, please provide data based on scopes 1 & 2 emissions. Scope 1 emissions refer to GHG emissions directly resulting from sources owned or operated by the institution (e.g. on-campus combustion of fossil fuels, emissions from campus vehicles). Scope 2 emissions refer to emissions generated indirectly due to the production of electricity that the institution consumes. Scope 3 emissions refer to all other indirect emissions that result from activities of the institution (e.g. employee travel).

 

GREENHOUSE GAS INVENTORY


20)Has your school completed a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory?Please check all that apply.

The year the inventory was started (rather than ended) should be the year of the inventory. For example, if you began an inventory in June 2008, this would be your 2008 inventory.

[  ]  No
[]In progress. Please describe status and provide estimated completion date:

[X]  Yes.  Please provide total annual GHG emissions (Scopes 1 & 2, as well as scopes 1, 2 & 3 in metric tons of CO2e). Include the start date for each year as well as the URL to each inventory, if available online, or attach the document.

COMMITMENT TO GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS REDUCTION

 

21) Has your school made a commitment to reduce GHG emissions a specific amount by a target year?

The commitment should be to reducing actual campus greenhouse gas emissions, and does not include offsets or renewable energy credits (purchase of RECs is addressed in question 31). For example, if the university is committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2030, and aims to do so by reducing campus emissions by 50 percent and buying offsets for the remaining 50 percent, you would indicate “50%” as the reduction level.

Yes


If yes, please list details below.

 

Reduction level (percentage): 100%

Baseline year: 2005

Baseline emissions level: 318526

Target year: 2050

 

Additional comments: It is unknown if technologies will exist in 2050 for the campus to produce zero GHG emissions without offsets.  The University has a goal of reducing GHG emissions (without offsets) 50% by 2020.

 

REALIZED GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS REDUCTIONS

22) Has your school achieved a reduction in GHG emissions? Answer should be based on scopes 1 & 2 emissions.

Please indicate whether your school has achieved actual reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. This does not include the purchase of carbon offsets or renewable energy credits. (Purchase of RECs is considered in question 31.)

Yes


If yes, please list details below.

 

Percentage reduced: 9.4%

Baseline year: 2005

Baseline emissions level: 318526

Year achieved: 2009

 

Additional comments:

 

23) Please provide GHG emissions figures in terms of gross square feet on campus for the past four years. Answers should be based on scopes 1 & 2 emissions.
Per-gross-square-foot emissions = Total CO2e in metric tons / Total maintained building space

 

The year the inventory was started (rather than ended) should be the year of the inventory. For example, if you began an inventory in June 2008, this would be your 2008 inventory.

24) Please provide GHG emissions figures per full-time student equivalent for the past four years. Answers should be based on scopes 1 & 2 emissions.

Per full-time student equivalent emissions = Total CO2e in metric tons / Total number of full-time equivalent students.

[X]  

 

Making orientation more sustainable through efforts such as a zero-waste meal or carbon offsets.

[X]  

 

Other. Please describe:

 The Orientation Office made great strides to infuse sustainability into the New Student Orientation Program.  Their sustainability initiatives ranged from the sensible to the zany and most importantly, the Orientation Office explained the environmental benefits of each initiative so that all new students learn that environmental stewardship is part of the culture of the University of Maryland.  To address the food waste generated from meals during previous summers, the Orientation Office coordinated with the Department of Dining Services to collect waste for compost during orientation dinners.  Using well-labeled bins for compost, recycling, and trash, many new students learned to separate their waste in a new way.  The Orientation Office also worked with the caterer to replace polystyrene plates with compostable paper plates.  The Orientation Office also saved roughly 300,000 sheets of paper over the summer by creating an online Virtual Folder that has all the fliers and resources students typically receive during the Orientation Program.  Even the new student gift was selected with sustainability in mind.  All new students received a backpack that they will hopefully use throughout their time on campus. To drive home that sustainability is an important part of campus life, the student Orientation Advisors created a high-energy and entertaining skit about adopting sustainable behaviors as Maryland students.  The skit encouraged students to turn off lights and electronic devices when they leave their rooms, to recycle overwhelmingly long term papers, and to dine-in at the dining hall instead of using disposable take-out containers.
