What are the PROJECT OBJECTIVES?

The main objective of Project Carbon Neutral or PCN is to benchmark and assess the status of the carbon footprint of De La Salle Philippines (DLSP), the network of Lasallian educational institutions, with the goal of achieving a “green” educational network that is carbon-neutral or better.

At the end of SY 2010-2011, the schools will have a clear picture of how much carbon dioxide each generates from its activities and how much of the carbon dioxide generated are offset by other activities. This will provide data and information from which administrators could decide which carbon dioxide-reducing activities it would undertake to do its part in addressing this global issue. It would also provide, by aggregating the individual schools’ carbon footprint data and information, an aggregated picture DLSP’s carbon footprint.
