REDUCTION GOAL: By 2012, reduce net emissions from ground transportation to no more than 11,500 t CO2e
In FY08, emissions from agriculture contributed almost 2,400 t CO2e. These emissions mainly resulted from the digestive processes of livestock and the fertilization of crops with synthetic fertilizers. Emissions from this category have increased by 26% since 2004, the oldest year with intact data. Some of this increase represents actual growth, while some is a result of improved data collection.
|Strategy||Implementation Period||FY10 Progress||Estimated FY10 Reduction|
|1: Encourage alternative modes of transportation/commute (reduce the number of vehicle miles driven)|
|2: Minimize climate impact of ground transportation when driving|
|3: Offset remaining emissions from ground transportation|
