introduction
Introduction

Objectives:

  • Find carbon dioxide emissions due to university managed travel (university sanctioned trips by faculty, staff and students) during the 2008 fiscal year, and explain the drivers for this kind of travel.
  • Use this knowledge to determine which activities should be targeted to efficiently reduce emissions.

Methodology:

  • Categorized activities for which data was obtained into four categories: Business trips flown, student study abroad trips flown, business trips driven, and drives to the airport.

conclusions and future directions
Conclusions and Future Directions
  • 11,259,977 kg carbon dioxide emitted during FY2008 as a result of university-managed travel
  • Most prominent carbon-emitting activities were faculty/staff business trips, both flown and driven
  • Holes: many specific activities left out due to lack of data; data insufficient to trace most miles traveled back to an activity; miles driven for business trips had to be extrapolated
  • Possible improvements: improve accounting methods
  • Future directions: Integrate commuting and university-managed travel data; validate results
