    b. Minimize fossil fuel use by university owned vehicles by converting fleet to alternative fuels and power sources and reporting fuel consumption on an annual basis.
    c. Implement innovations, upgrades, preventative maintenance and best practices in energy management, climate change mitigation and environmental protection.
    d. Expand Energy Management Program activities to include all departments and units on all campuses.
    e. Expand greenhouse gas inventory to include emissions generated by air travel, commuting and the embodied energy of goods and services.
