Event Schedule

The Climathon Challenge in Long Beach

A major challenge that faces many institutions is how to address Scope 3 emissions. California State University, Long Beach has prepared a Climate Action Plan (CAP) that establishes a carbon neutral goal of 2030.

The CAP was prepared in compliance with the mandate from the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, signed by President F. King Alexander in 2013. Many organizations have declared a carbon neutral objective. However, they only cover scopes 1 and 2 emissions. CSULB has established the 2030 carbon neutral date to include all three sources of emissions. According to the CSULB CAP, the three categories of emissions are defined as:

• Scope 1: Direct emissions from combustion of fossil fuels on campus (i.e. natural gas, diesel, propane, etc.) and from refrigerants;

• Scope 2: Indirect emissions from purchased energy (i.e. electricity); and

• Scope 3: Indirect emissions from (a) student, faculty, and staff commuting; and (b) institution funded travel.

The challenge to achieve carbon neutrality that includes scope 3 emissions is significant for a commuter campus such as CSULB. More generally, the challenge for the Long Beach team is to find solutions to scope 3 emissions that will work for CSULB as well as other organizations with significant scope 3 emissions such as Molina Healthcare, Boeing, Space X, Mercedes, Long Beach Airport, etc.
