Campuses have the potential to either emit or reduce large amounts of carbon in the form of greenhouse gases from their many, large buildings. Many different opportunities exist to either develop renewal energy sources on or off site for a campus, use green space, green roofs and forest areas to mitigate these pollutants. By understanding where carbon emissions are coming from in the largest quantities (transportation, heating/cooling, etc.) it is possible to reduce these gases.


In the web series Expanding Financial Leadership: Facilities, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability there are now five  30-minute videos that will inform participants on how to expand their knowledge base to create a conceptual facilities framework that can impact their campuses for years to come.  One in particular that addresses the world situation is from ASU leader  and former BP Asia-Pacific presdient, Dr Gary Dirks - this "Definition and Strategies for Sustatainability" is in the process of being placed on another platform - check back in April for the link.
