NYIT Measures Long Island's Carbon Footprint

long island business news

NYIT's Long Island Carbon Footprint project is among numerous Long Island initiatives aimed at measuring measuring energy use and environmental impacts, as noted in Long Island Business News (subscription required)

“Through the hard work of graduate students in the energy management and environmental technology programs, we were able to establish and compare energy use and resultant greenhouse gas emissions on Long Island for 2010 with the baseline year of 2005,” says Greg Banhazl, director of business development, in "Long Island Firms Assess Green Benchmarks."  The findings of the NYIT team indicate that greenhouse gas emissions dropped 9.75% from 2005 to 2010.
