Reduction in Greenhouse Gasses

Reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions (weight in metric tons of CO2 equivalent of six gasses emitted). Three sources of emissions are considered: Direct fuel combustion (Scope 1); Purchased energy sources (Scope 2); and Indirect sources (Scope 3). Smithsonian goals have been defined in response to Federal Executive Order 13514. Goals are: 32% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 and 11% in Scope 3 by FY2020, resulting in overall 28.5% reduction relative to FY2008 baseline.

Federal fiscal year (FY) runs from October 1st through September 30th.
