Emissions from campus fleets, commuting, and campus air travel are a major component of Wesleyan's carbon footprint. To neutralize these emissions, we will have to:
- Transition to more efficient campus fleets; fuel the fleet with non-fossil fuels like electricity, biofuels, or hydrogen; and use the vehicles only when necessary;
- Implement transportation management strategies, including universal access transit passes, market-rate pricing, commuter benefit programs, telecommuting/flexible scheduling, bicycle sharing/rental programs, web-conferencing, car sharing, and educational outreach programs to encourage commuters to use more sustainable transportation options;
- Offset remaining emissions.
