2018 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

By Sustainability Office on March 29, 2019

This year marks Colgate’s tenth consecutive greenhouse gas inventory report. Colgate’s gross campus carbon emissions in Fiscal Year 2018 (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018) was 9,464 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTeCO2). We have reduced our net campus carbon footprint by 12,332 MTeCO2, representing a 72.9 percent reduction since 2009. Since signing the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2009, rebranded as Second Nature’s Carbon Commitment, Colgate has implemented many changes on and off campus to achieve these reductions, moving closer toward our goal of carbon neutrality. 2018 State of Sustainability Report.
