Greenhouse Gas Inventory

Our greenhouse gas emissions have gone down by 15% since 1990 thanks to changes made to the way we manage our buildings and grounds and behavior change.

Ursinus College signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2007. This action committed the College to writing a Climate Action Plan to achieve climate neutrality as soon as possible, inventorying the College’s greenhouse gas emissions every other year, and making the action plan, inventories, and periodic updates publicly available.

We updated our GHG inventory in January of 2014.  Please see below for information about our emissions by source:
