ESG/Ethical Impact

Vanderbilt University operates an on-site, natural gas fueled co-generation power plant that meets the steam and a portion of the chilled water needs of the University and Medical Center and 29% of the electrical needs. The remaining 71% electrical need is purchased from the Tennessee Valley Authority through Nashville Electric Service (NES). Vanderbilt emits Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) through these two processes as well as university fleet vehicle use, refrigerant releases, faculty, and staff commuting to work, air travel paid for by the University, and waste disposal and recycling. The six GHGs emitted into the atmosphere that comprise the majority of the carbon footprint are: carbon dioxide (CO2); methane (CH4); nitrous oxide (N2O); hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs); perfluorocarbons (PFCs); and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The amount of emissions of each gas are converted to a standard unit of measure, or metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (MTCO2E) and then summed to determine Vanderbilt’s carbon footprint. Vanderbilt University became an independent legal entity from VUMC on May 1, 2016. Vanderbilt University is now smaller in both number of people and square feet without the Medical Center, and therefore, so are the 2016 and forward Greenhouse Gas inventories in comparison to previous inventories (2005-2015). Because of the significant shift in GHG footprint due to the new organization, 2005-2015 GHG data is archived. The 2016 Annual Report contains first year baseline data for the University only, with the FY21-22 Annual Report presenting the sixth year of trending data. This sustainability report is intended to portray Vanderbilt’s current carbon footprint as accurately as possible and to highlight other key sustainability gains in fiscal year 2022 from July 2021-June 2022, aligning with the Vanderbilt academic year cycle. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, campus operations during FY20-21 and FY21-22 were significantly altered compared to a pre-pandemic state. Throughout this report, we will compare the FY21-22 GHG emission profile to both the FY20-21 and FY19-20 reports so we can better understand emissions trends over a longer timeframe and the emissions impacts that were due to COVID-19 operational changes.
