Ground Transportation

REDUCTION GOAL: By 2012, reduce net emissions from ground transportation to no more than 11,500 t CO2e

 FY07  FY08  FY09 FY10 FY12 Target

Goal Overview

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.

Progress Summary

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
