Total GHG Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

Total offsettable emissions from UBC Vancouver campus buildings, fleet, fugitives and paper. This includes GHG emissions from TRIUMF (UBC share) and excludes GHG emissions from UBC Off Campus properties, UBC Properties Trust and biomass emissions.

Total GHG Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCO) text

Total offsettable emissions from UBC Okanagan campus buildings, fleet, fugitives and paper.

Scope 1 Direct Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

Scope 1 emissions generated through campus operations which are directly controlled and operated by UBC (Scope 1 emissions). UBC Vancouver campus Scope 1 emissions include fuel consumption for energy generation on UBC Vancouver campus, natural gas usage in TRIUMF (UBC share) and fuel usage by campus fleet. It also includes fugitive emissions determined by the amount of refrigerants used to replenish chillers and similar systems on campus during servicing.

Scope 2 Indirect Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

Scope 2 emissions are upstream emissions from electricity consumed on UBC Vancouver campus and TRIUMF (UBC share).

Scope 3 (Paper) - Emissions in scope (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

Scope 3 emissions are those that UBC Vancouver campus does not directly own or control, but are impacts that occur through University activities and its ability to influence through purchasing decisions, behavioral change programs, policy and guidelines. Emissions from paper consumption on UBC Vancouver campus are the only Scope 3 offsettable emissions which are to be reported under the Provincial Regulations.

Other Scope 3 Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

Other Scope 3 emissions that UBC is not required to report or offset under Provincial Regulations include sources such as commuting to and from campus, business air travel, food consumed on campus, waste, and the embodied carbon associated with the construction of new buildings and retrofits.

2015 CAP Target Total GHG Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

In 2010, UBC Climate Action Plan (CAP) set a 33% GHG emission reduction target by 2015 against a 2007 baseline for Vancouver campus.

2020 CAP Target Total GHG Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

In 2010, UBC Climate Action Plan set a 67% GHG emission reduction target by 2020 against a 2007 baseline for Vancouver campus.

2030 CAP Target Total GHG Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

UBC Climate Action Plan 2030 has set a target of 85% GHG emission reduction by 2030 below 2007 baseline level for Vancouver campus.

2035 CAP Target Total GHG Emissions (tCO2e) (UBCV) text

UBC Climate Action Plan 2030 has set a new accelerated target of net zero campus operations emissions by 2035 against the 2007 baseline for Vancouver campus. Net zero emission means that all human-caused emissions (such as those from fossil-fueled vehicles and factories) should be reduced as close to zero as possible.

Total GHG emissions per Student FTE (tCO2e/FTE) (UBCV) text

Total offsettable emissions per full time equivalent student enrolment on UBC Vancouver campus.

Total GHG emissions per Student FTE (tCO2e/FTE) (UBCO) text

Total GHG emissions per GSM (kgCO2e/m2) (UBCO) text

Total offsettable emissions per square meter of institutional floor space on UBC Okanagan campus.

GHG emissions reduction vs 2007 (%) (UBCV) text

The percentage GHG emissions reduction at UBC Vancouver campus since the 2007 baseline year levels.

GHG emissions reduction vs 2013 (%) (UBCO) text

The percentage GHG emissions reduction at UBC Okanagan campus since the 2013 baseline year levels.
