Carbon Project

日本一本道a不卡免费Launched in June 2018, the ASU Carbon Project purchases and generates offsets for difficult to mitigate ASU carbon emissions at the rate of about 45,000 metric tons each year. The ASU Carbon Project is funded, in part, by the price on carbon for all ASU-sponsored air travel. 

日本一本道a不卡免费The project objectives are:

  • Reduce ASU’s greenhouse gas inventory.
  • Reduce the need to purchase offsets in the future. 
  • Tell ASU’s story and connect to local communities while supporting academics and research.

Carbon Sink at ASU West

日本一本道a不卡免费Expanding native landscapes, sequestering carbon, and providing a living laboratory are the goals of the campus carbon sink at ASU’s West campus. The Carbon Sink’s 1,000 trees will be planted in March 2020 with support from Northern Arizona University.

Fleet Conversion Incentive - pilot

日本一本道a不卡免费University Sustainability Practices supports departments and schools in their transition to car-sharing or toward electric vehicles. Vehicles retired or converted can create a permanent reduction in ASU’s emissions. For more information, email University Sustainability Practices.

Urban Forestry

ASU worked with the cities of Phoenix and Tempe to plant over 662 trees with over 281 volunteers and over 463 volunteer hours. The trees planted are part of Community Offset Bundles or third-party verified carbon offsets combined with local tree plantings. The trees planted to-date will sequester over 2250 tons of carbon, support the ASU Urban Climate Research Center’s urban heat island research, and reduce the need to purchase offsets in the future.

日本一本道a不卡免费University Sustainability Practices seeks input on potential carbon mitigation projects. Projects must meet the purpose and guidelines detailed in the submission form but do not need to be implementation-ready.
