Scope 1 - emissions generated by UW Bothell on campus (e.g. burning natural gas for heating).
Scope 2 - emissions produced by generating energy purchased by the UW Bothell (we purchase our electricity from Puget Sound Energy, and carbon intensity varies).
Scope 3 - emissions produced off campus in support of UW Bothell work (ex: commuting & professional travel). Scope 3 emissions are high at UWB because we are primarily a commuter campus. The increase in scope 3 emisions from 2009 onward reflects the large increase in students we have experienced over the last four years.
