Annamalai University has set goals with a firm timeline, therefore a baseline for GHG emissions must be created to develop improvement strategies and monitor progress. The primary goal of this research is to calculate a transparent carbon footprint of Annamalai University's main campus. Carbon footprints measure the amount of GHG emissions associated with human activities. Carbon foot printing of higher education institutions is currently an underdeveloped research area despite a growing movement to reduce GHGs from these systems. As a contribution to efforts on the subject, and to address Annamalai university GHG reduction efforts, this research evaluates Annamalai university operational activities that emit GHGs. The cumulative contribution of these activities creates Annamalai university carbon footprint.The main objective of this thesis is to develop an accounting tool to calculate GHG emissions, from the campus of Annamalai University and to assess their carbon inventory, footprint and their impact on climate change.
