Emissions Monitoring and Reporting

As part of the updated Climate Action Plan (CAP), the University of Oregon will monitor and report emissions annually.  These efforts include:

  • UO President Michael Schill's request that the university's Board secretary adds an annual report on campus emissions and climate change mitigation efforts to the Board's agenda.
  • A committee comprised of students, faculty, and staff to monitor progress on the current CAP and advise on changes to the planned update in 2024. This committee will be managed through the Vice President for Finance and Administration's (VPFA) office.
  • The Office of Sustainability will use the Sustainability Indicator Management and Analysis Platform (SIMAP) tool to track and calculate emissions anually.
  • Public sharing of the UO's emissions inventory results. The updated CAP establishes 2010 as the baseline year for emissions since earlier records are unreliable.
