GLRPPR Sector Resource: The State of Sustainability in Higher Education 2015
The State of Sustainability in Higher Education 2015
This report was based on a study of a collective 1.5 billion square feet of campus facilities, which are operated by 343 colleges and universities spread out across 44 states. The nationally representative sample consisted of both public (60 percent) and private (40 percent) institutions. The report found that emissions per square foot declined by 13 percent between 2007 and 2014, and energy usage per square foot was down just 2 percent over the identical eight-year period. This is because most of the progress in reducing campus carbon footprints came as a result of switching from coal and oil to natural gas.
