Now that you have all the facts and calculations completed, you are ready to report your greenhouse gas goal and create your effective goal statement! Your Advisor can help with this if needed.
Greenhouse Gas Goal Statements:
Here are two examples of goal statements. The first is generic and unlikely to result in success. The second contains all the components of an effective goal and is much more likely to result in a successful project:
- Generic: We want to reduce CO2 generated from idling cars.
- Effective: We want to reduce 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from idling cars in the drive-through line at the fast-food restaurant on the corner of Pine and 1st by conducting a Public Education and Action Campaign targeting customers every Friday afternoon during the month of April.
