Stanford's commitment of reaching net-zero emissions from its operation by 2050 will require developing new tools and strategies for emissions generated through operations like business travel and purchasing of supplies and services, known as Scope 3 emissions. Led by Randy Livingston, vice president for Business Affairs, this program will not only help Stanford reach its goal but also establish a path for other institutions and for the more than 100 companies that have pledged to reach net-zero emissions by 2040.
