6 Context McGill University manages a stock of buildings of over 600,000 m 2 which are on average fifty years of age and older. A leader in education and research, McGill is characterized by very research-intensive activities, a travelling population, and high energy intensity. In 2013 McGill emitted 62,080 tonnes of CO 2e. This is the equivalent emissions from 13,000 cars in one year. This is also 18 times the annual carbon sequestration potential of the forests owned by McGill (Gault Nature Reserve and Morgan Arboretum). McGill s target is to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 25% below levels 1. As of , emissions were 3 below levels, thereby exceeding the original target. In spite of these challenges, the University s carbon footprint is much lower than comparable institutions, partly because most of the electricity consumed on campus comes from renewable resources and also due to various programs such as recycling and composting on campus, sound waste management on renovation projects, etc. The table below shows McGill s emissions for 2013 as well as those of fellow universities similar to McGill (research-oriented, medical doctoral universities located in rather cold climate zones.) University McGill UBC 2 U of T 3 Calgary 4 Cornell 5 Harvard 6 Scope 1 42,966 49,158 84,247 50, , Scope ,192 54, ,822 17, Scope ,317 56,609 26,029 88,621 59, Total 62, , , , , ,371 Environmental Reporting at McGill McGill has been reporting on most scope 1 emissions and on other airborne contaminants for the past two decades, mostly on a voluntary basis. This year s report is McGill s first attempt at capturing scope 3 emissions which are notably more challenging to quantify than scope 1 and 2 emissions due to the lack of internal systems to track data (air travel, water consumption, etc.) The motivation behind scope 3 reporting is to provide food for thoughts and inform stakeholders involved in McGill s Vision 2020 Sustainable Strategy. For instance, a working group is looking at university-related travel emissions, how to better collect data and making recommendations to decision makers to reduce McGill s carbon footprint. 1 12,800 tonnes CO2e applicable to scope 1 and 2 emissions from utilities, ref MELS report. 2 UBC Vancouver Campus 2013 Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory 3 University of Toronto St. George Campus Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory 4 University of Calgary Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report 5 Cornell University Ithaca Campus 2012 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory scope 1 and 2 emissions only, Harvard Sustainability Impact Report 7 Partial scope 3 emissions for all reporting universities. 1

7 System Boundary This inventory covers all assets owned by McGill University including: - McGill s main and Macdonald Campuses, both located on the Island of Montreal, QC; - The Gault Nature Reserve located in Mont-Saint-Hilaire, QC; - And the Bellairs Research Institute located in Holetown, Barbados. The University comprises different entities broken down into two categories in this report: academic units and self-funded units. Academic Units Academic units include: - All the faculties, schools and research centres; - Libraries; - All other administrative units including University Services. Self-Funded Units Self-funded units are thus called because they are not funded by le Ministère de l Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche du Québec and should, therefore, be self-sufficient. These units include: - Student unions (the SSMU, the PGSS, MCSS, MACES); - Student Services; - Student Housing and Hospitality Services; - Faculty Clubs; - Athletics (McGill Athletics and Macdonald Campus Athletics); - Macdonald Campus Housing; - Ancillary Services (the Bookstore); - The Montreal Neurological Institute (which co-manages the Neuro with the McGill University Health Centre). External Entities McGill supplies energy in part or in whole to several buildings owned or used by external entities (see list below). The emissions from these external entities are excluded from McGill s inventory. - McGill University Health Centre (which co-owns the Neuro); - The Canadian Aviation Heritage Centre. 2

8 Methodology The intent of McGill is to give as thorough as possible an account of its impact on climate change, and therefore, the report includes all scope 1 and scope 2 emissions, as well as some scope 3 emissions 8. Emission accounting is based on the emission factor method except for emissions related to staff and student commuting. Existing Reporting Schemes The University must report on most scope 1 emissions and some scope 2 emissions to the following reporting schemes: - Mandatory reporting to Natural Resources Canada s National Greenhouse Gas Inventory: scope 1 emissions from stationary combustion, organization-owned vehicles, and refrigerants regulated by the Kyoto Protocol. - Mandatory reporting to Québec s cap and trade system (SPEDE managed by the MDDELCC 9 within the frame of the Western Climate Initiative): scope 1 emissions from stationary combustion, organization-owned vehicles, and refrigerants regulated by the Kyoto Protocol. - Mandatory reporting to the City of Montreal s airborne contaminant inventory: scope 1 emissions from stationary combustion. - Voluntary reporting to AASHE 10 STARS: all scopes, all activities. - Mandatory reporting to Québec s MESR 11 : energy use, scope 1 emissions from stationary combustion and scope 2 emissions from purchased energy. Data Collection The table below lists the sources for all the data used in this report as well as the overall uncertainty associated with each set of data. Note that uncertainty of means that the data set is 10 reliable and backed-up with invoices; a 10 uncertainty means there is no estimate whatsoever for the activity. Data is broken down into activities, fuels, and emission scopes. Notes on overall uncertainty of data: - An overall uncertainty of 5 was attributed to any data set coming from a survey or an estimate made by a professional. - An overall uncertainty of 25% was attributed to data sets backed up with invoices made available by Accounting on the premise that Accounting staff might miss some invoices. 8 Please refer to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol for a definition of emission scopes. 9 Le Ministère du Développement durable, de l Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques 10 The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education 11 Le Ministère de l Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche du Québec 3

9 - An overall uncertainty of 5% was attributed to electricity as the data available is for fiscal year whereas this report is for calendar year Given the low impact of electricity on McGill s overall greenhouse gas emissions and how stable electricity consumption is, it was decided to use data for electricity. - An overall uncertainty of 1 was attributed to steam consumption data read off McGill s meters whose typical uncertainty is below 1.

An Applied Student Research has been proposed to students enrolled in ENVR-401 this fall with the goal to determine emission factors that would better represent the context of the Greater Montreal. UK s DEFRA emission factors were used for water supply and treatment as no other factor is available for North America. An Applied Student Research has been proposed to students enrolled in ENVR-401 6

12 in Fall 2014 with the goal to determine emission factors that would better represent the context of the Greater Montreal Area. No emission factor is applicable to the disposal of hazardous waste. This includes the disposal of contaminated lab equipment (nuclear, bio-hazard, etc.) A project will be proposed for students to investigate emissions factors based on annual activity reports from Hazardous Waste Management.
