Sustainability Dashboard

One of the major functions of Sustain Champlain is to track and assess the Champlain College’s environmental performance.

Taking Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Each year, Champlain calculates our campus’ greenhouse gas emissions so that we can track our own progress, compare it to that of peer institutions, and set benchmarks as we move forward. From 2008-2016, Champlain College worked with Sightlines, a facilities asset advisory firm that specializes in tracking sustainability indicators including energy, transportation, waste, and greenhouse gas emissions. In 2017, we started working with an independent contractor to conduct our inventory, and in 2020 we started using the UNH Simap calculator.

State of the College Reports & Sustainability Action Plans


As stated on their website, “The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System™ (STARS) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance.”
