Abstract: Concerns over climate change and global warming are becoming increasingly important in the agenda of nations; businesses and educational institutions. The demand for low carbon footprint (CF) has prompted many institutions including universities around the world to assess and report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. CF reporting is seen as a measure of long-term sustainability of the enterprise and as a planning mechanism for carbon reduction and energy efficiency. Recognizing the potential and usefulness of CF reporting, the present study attempted to quantify CF of the Marine campus of the University of the South Pacific and then evaluated various potential GHG reduction opportunities. This research involved developing a campus CF model with the aim of assessing the size and main components of the campus’s CO2e emissions.
