From the initial application: McGill Food and Dining Services (MFDS) plans to enlist the support of seven (7) students to assess MFDS’ carbon footprint and develop strategies to reduce it. Utilities and Energy Management office will support the project with the greenhouse gas calculating software, Carbon Solve and the expertise of their Energy Manager. Building Services will support the project through expertise of their staff and by sharing the data that results from SPF project #77 “Waste to Resource assessment”, conducting a waste of audit of select MFDS locations from February to April 2013. Three detailed inventories of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission from energy use, water use, and solid waste will be conducted in Winter 2013 (ideally for credit, alternatively for wage). They will be done by students and supervised by staff and hopefully, also professors. The McGill Energy Project (SPF supported) will help to identify keen students and professors for this project. A coordinator will be hired to oversee the three student projects during the winter. Over the summer and fall the coordinator will compile the data, fill any holes, and develop recommendations and a plan to institutionalize a cyclic assessment.
