Emissions generated as a result of energy consumption (including both electricity and heating/cooling) represent the majority of Wesleyan's greenhouse gas emissions. To neutralize these emissions, we are working to:
- Keep temperatures lower in winter and higher in summer through the Energy Conservation Policy.
- Reduce energy use as much as possible through conservation and efficiency initiatives.
- Generate our own energy from renewable energy sources.
- Promote behavior change through programs like Eco Facilitators, Do It in the Dark, and Wes to Wes.
