University Verifies Emissions Inventory
Stanford’s 2014 greenhouse gas emissions inventory was recently verified and is now available through The Climate Registry. Stanford’s verified Scope 1 and 2 emissions totaled 178,784 metric tons of CO2 in 2014—a 2% decrease from 2013. Emissions will continue to decrease substantially in coming years due to SESI. Learn More

Timer Installations Rolling Out Across Campus
Sustainable Stanford interns are installing programmable timers on equipment across campus to reduce the university's plug load energy use. They have already installed 50+ timers, offering a combined cost savings of over $1,000 each year. Learn More
Sustainability Champion of the Month
Jacob Cohn - Libraries Facilities Coordinator
Thanks to Jacob Cohn's  scheduling and logistical support, Green Library, Bing Wing, and Lathrop Library were some of the first buildings on campus to reduce their plug loads through Sustainable Stanford's new equipment timer installation program. The 21 timers installed throughout the buildings are estimated to save the libraries about $500 in electricity costs every year!
