Clean Air - Cool Planet Carbon Calculator
The Campus Carbon Calculator� is the leading tool for assessing campus greenhouse gas emissions. Currently in use at more than 1200 campuses across the country, the Calculator has already helped schools of all sizes and types, and in all regions to tackle global warming. Learn More
The Climate Registry
The Climate Registry is a nonprofit organization that provides meaningful information to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Registry establishes consistent, transparent standards throughout North America for businesses and governments to calculate, verify and publicly report their carbon footprints in a single, unified registry.
The Registry is committed to:
- Utilizing best practices in greenhouse gas emissions reporting
- Establishing a common data infrastructure for voluntary and mandatory reporting and emissions reduction programs
- Minimizing the burden on Members, Directors and Native Sovereign Nations
- Providing an opportunity for Members to establish an emissions baseline and document early action
- Developing a recognized platform for credible and consistent greenhouse gas emissions reporting
- Promoting full and public disclosure of greenhouse gas emissions while respecting business confidentiality
Energy Reports and Action Plans
Five Energy Reports and Action Plans are now available online! NJHEPS received grant money from the BPU to develop 15 Energy Reports and Action Plans last year and 10 more this year. A few institutions have presented their Energy Reports at NJHEPS Energy Workshops. Others have utilized the Energy Reports as internal tools or presented them to their institution's President showing what opportunities are available to save their campus money, along with reducing their emissions. Available for viewing:
Please contact Gary Minkoff, Executive Director if you are interested in NJHEPS doing an Energy Report and Action Plan for your institution.

Support for Making Green Technology Choices
Did you know that your desktop computer, if left on 24/7, may consume $110 of electricity and produce 1600 lbs of CO2 per year? Save money and reduce emissions with green computer use practices! Please download this one-page flyer (Adobe Acrobat PDF) you can share with your IT department or college computer/printing facility. The flyer offers strategies for both departments and individuals to follow to reduce paper use and use less computing energy. Harvard's Green Campus Initiative also offers online information about its Computer Energy Reduction Program at www.greencampus.harvard.edu/CERP/
Environmental Protection Agency Carbon Calculators and Green Power Community
EPA�s Clean Energy Programs are working with state policy makers, electric and gas utilities, energy customers, and other key stakeholders to identify, design and implement clean energy policy and technology solutions. These programs provide useful, objective information and technical assistance for available clean energy technologies. Stakeholders can find relevant policy information and receive valuable recognition for meeting specific requirements under each program area.
