Make Your Personal Sustainability Pledge
While the University has committed itself to achieving overall sustainability, it will take the active participation of the entire Emory community to pitch in, turn off, conserve and re-evaluate daily habits for Emory to realize its vision.
We invite you to pledge your efforts to address energy, sustainable food, water conservation, green space, commuting, recycling, and other sustainability issues when at Emory and at home.

1. This calculator estimates greenhouse gas emissions in terms of carbon dioxide equivalents on the basis of each greenhouse gasâ€™ global warming potential using standard protocols. The focus of the calculator is carbon dioxide since the other greenhouse gases represent a much smaller percentage of emissions associated with each pledge activity.
These calculations are based on a series of assumptions--learn more about how your carbon dioxide and related equivalencies were determined using the EPA calculator.
