The Campus Carbon Calculator was originally developed by the former non-profit Clean Air - Cool Planet and Sustainability Institute at UNH in 2001 and released to the public in 2004. Usage grew to a few dozen early adopters to about 200 during the first year. Today, thousands of institutions in the U.S. and abroad, have used the Calculator, including more than 90% of the U.S. colleges and universities that publicly report their greenhouse gas emissions.
Launched in 2009 with a $650,000 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), UNH’s Energy Efficiency Fund (EEF) has already seen more than $500,000 in energy savings “returns,” including over $250,000 in FY12 alone.
UNH Printing and Mailing Services is committed to being a sustainably responsible print shop, and we continually make strides to become one of the greenest departments on campus. From using 100% recycled Aspen paper in all of our copiers, to using vegetable based non-oil printing inks, we are trying hard each year to make our environmental footprint a little smaller.

As technology continues to evolve, multifunction copiers (MFD) have become the standard use in today’s business models. Having one machine that prints, faxes, scans, and copies is a great space and money saver. These copiers offer cost-effective, high-performance, high value document management solutions for any office setting. In addition, these copiers deliver a broad range of print, copy, scan, and fax speeds with advanced finishing options. Please contact UNH Printing Services for additional information on multifunction devices.

WildCAP – named after the university’s wild cat mascot – is the UNH Climate Action Plan (CAP) that consolidates the work and planning that has long been underway across the campus into a coherent framework for strengthening and expanding those efforts over the next quarter-century. With those long-term goals in mind, this plan focuses on planning for the next 10 years, so as to integrate with existing long-range planning activities at the university, such as the Campus Master Plan and others.
