Starting in January 2010, Simon Fraser University along with other British Columbia public sector organizations must meet the Greenhouse Gas Reductions Act and Bill 44 Carbon Neutral Public Sector. This legislation has provided the catalyst for developing climate action plans to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.
Simon Fraser University's inventory is approximately 16,500 tones of carbon equivalents annually (2007 GHG Inventory). The 2007 inventory provides an excellent benchmark for assessing ongoing reductions and mitigation efforts.
