2015 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report

Duquesne is the first university in western Pennsylvania and one of only a few in the state to conduct biennial Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories on the University's carbon footprint. The University has played a leading role in moving other schools in the region to undertake similar studies and to direct the region as a whole toward environmental stewardship.

The University’s carbon footprint, which is based upon all gases emitted, has been substantially the smallest of all Atlantic 10 Conference schools conducting similar studies.

Results of the fourth greenhouse gase inventory - covering the years 2011-2012 was published in 2015.

Duquesne University's total GHG emissions for fiscal year 2012 were 47,501.95 metric tonnes of eCO2 before offsets and 39,203.31 metric tonnes of eCO2 after factoring in offsets. This represents an overall decrease from the previous inventory, and a decrease in the per-student footprint to 3.92 metric tonnes of eCO2. This total is respectable in comparison to other universities that have completed GHG emissions reports.
