Long Island Carbon Footprint Project

See Complete Long Island Carbon Footprint Project


 

Nassau and Suffolk County Residents can complete the anonymous, residential survey here.

In 2010, through the support of the Rauch foundation, NYIT was commissioned to update an ICLEI 2005 Carbon footprint study on LI and to develop and standardize a local community greenhouse gas inventory and accounting process going forward. Energy use and resultant greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on Long Island for the year 2010 were established and were compared to 2005 as a baseline. Through this project, NYIT will update and enhance the measurement and presentation of the Long Island Carbon Footprint in conjunction with partnerships with various organizations and institutions in Long Island. NYIT is uniquely positioned to provide this comparison of GHG emissions studies for the Long Island community.

The regional inventory serves as a rallying point for governments, businesses, organizations and residents to coordinate climate initiatives across Long Island. It is intended to provide Long Island communities with baseline greenhouse gas emissions data, and maximize the collective efforts of Local and regional entities to begin charting a course for emissions reduction throughout the region.
 

For more information, please contact the Long Island Carbon Footprint Project at lifootprint@nyit.edu.
