Emission Report 2016-2017

Here are a few of the items of note from our Emissions Report for the 2017 fiscal year

  • As of the end of FY17 (June 30), Williams is approximately 46% of the way toward reaching our current greenhouse gas emissions goal of 35% below 1990’s level by 2020.
  • Between 1990 and 2005 Williams’s emissions had increased from 23,188 to 33,950 metric tons, or about 46%. Since that time, a variety of strategies have been employed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with campus operations
  • And Scope 3 includes other indirect emissions (mostly from air and car travel by faculty, staff and students). Scope 3 emissions in FY17 were up approximately 15% from the previous year and up almost 40% from peak emissions.
