Sustainability at WSU



According to a survey conducted by the Energy & Sustainability Office in the Spring of 2011:

  • 73% of students and 80% of faculty & staff commute to the Ogden campus via a single-occupancy vehicle
  • 88% of students and 91% of faculty & staff commute to the Davis Campus in a single-occupancy vehicle (Click here for the WSU Commuter Survey Report).

Commuting represents the highest source of GHG emissions for WSU!

  • Student commuting = 29,538 metric tonnes of CO
  • Staff and faculty commuting = 5,356 metric tonnes of CO2 
  • Total WSU carbon footprint = 34,894 metric tonnes CO2 emitted in 2012 from commuting

By way of comparison, electricity consumption for the entire University resulted in 16,161 metric tonnes of CO2 being emitted last year. Natural gas consumed by WSU generated 9,555 metric tonnes of CO2 last year.
