A carbon footprint is the number of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere by particular human activity. Usually, a carbon footprint is calculated for a year. This study plans to evaluate the carbon footprint of the university. The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol Corporate Standard for developing a GHG inventory in a university will be used as a standard and guideline. A university has to determine its organizational boundaries in terms of the operations in identifying emissions associated with its services, categorizing them as direct and indirect emissions, and choosing the scope of accounting and reporting for indirect emissions. The primary sources of carbon footprint in the university are from goods and services, transportation, and energy production. This study will document carbon footprint assessment strategies adopted by higher education institutions in the Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Malaysia.
