Carbon Footprint

The carbon footprint is a measurement of total greenhouse gas emissions.  Electricity, natural gas, commuter data, and waste generation are part of what is analyzed to produce a  "tons of carbon dioxide equivalent" that can then be used to gauge improvement and compare institutions.

"Environmentalism does not come in any one shape, size, or look and it is also about protecting people in the places where they live, work, and rear families."
