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.

"I went into the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have no lived."
~ Henry David Thoreau (American essayist, poet and philosopher, 1817–1862)
