Kenyon’s progress towards becoming carbon neutral is being tracked through extensive carbon data reporting and internal assessments.
The Office of Green Initiatives annually compiles institutional data in SIMAP/STARS, a reporting and analysis platform about Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions. This includes student and faculty travel, utility consumptions, food, paper, and waste water use, and accounts for renewable energy generation and carbon sinks, such as the Brown Family Environmental Center forests.
Reporting is essential for sustainability action and planning, as it serves as a base for assessing fields for improvement and guides sustainable development on campus.
