UC Riverside is committed to reducing its emissions and has many initiatives to achieve this including adding renewable energy generation to the campus, transitioning fleet vehicles to zero emission vehicles, providing alternative transportation options, and making energy efficiency improvements. As part of this effort, UC Riverside monitors and tracks GHG emissions on an annual basis for regulatory compliance, climate action tracking, and future infrastructure planning. The campus tracks emissions based on three general categories Scope 1, 2 and 3, which are outlined below.
