Bentley's Carbon Footprint
The Bentley University Office of Sustainability was established in 2010 after the university signed the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). Since then, Bentley has made significant, concrete steps to reducing its carbon footprint.
Bentley University's building square footage and population have grown by 3.49% and 4% respectively since 2008. Despite this increase, the university has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 70% over the same time period.
The biggest contributors to the university's carbon footprint are greenhouse gas emissions from: grid electricity used to light, heat and cool buildings, natural gas burned in boilers on campus to make heat and hot water, commuting and air travel.
