4,667 . . .

Remember that number -- 4,667. That's the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in metric tons that GMC emitted from our operations during the 06-07 fiscal year. This number represents the starting point from which our progress toward carbon neutrality will be measured. As members of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, we will achieve net carbon neutrality "as soon as possible." Through efficiency measures, infrastructure improvements, individual behavior change, and likely offsets of one sort or another, GMC has to get from 4,667 to 0, and we have to develop the plan to do so by September 15, 2009.
