2007 Capstone Seminar Project - Sustainability: The Next Step Estimating the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay's Carbon Footprint

The Fall 2007 Capstone Seminar in Environmental Science and Policy (ES&P 763) chose this project as a result of Chancellor Bruce Shepard signing the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment in September 2007.  The commitment requires all signatory colleges and universities to complete and file a carbon footprint analysis within 1 year of signing.  We, the capstone class, felt that this project would not only be helpful to the campus, but would also build on the work of past capstone classes.  Please keep in mind that this is only a first draft of UWGB’s carbon footprint.  The class had only two months to gather the data and analyze it, therefore, some data is missing and other data inputs could be improved. 

The written report is divided into sections, with recommendations included in each chapter.  The report sections are as follows:
