REDUCTION GOAL: By 2012, reduce net emissions from agricultural activities to no more than 2,150 t CO2e
|2,404 t CO2e||2,507 t CO2e||2,410 t CO2e||2,299 t CO2e||2,150 t CO2e|
In FY08, emissions from ground transportation contributed almost 12,000 t CO2e. Emissions from student and employee commute, fleet, athletic bus travel, rental car mileage, and personal vehicle mileage used for business purposes are included in this category. Emissions from this category have increased by 13% since 2004, the oldest year with intact data. Some of this increase represents actual growth, while some is a result of improved data collection. Additionally, there are known sources that have not been captured in past inventories, athletics travel reimbursement for example, so actual emissions from this category may increase further.
||FY10 Progress||Estimated FY10 Reduction|
|1: Minimize climate impact of animal husbandry|
|2: Minimize climate impact of crop cultivation|
|3: Offset remaining emissions from agriculture|
