FYI on gross square footage: the physical boundaries for UC San Diego's climate/greenhouse gas reporting include our Hillcrest Medical Center, while the physical boundaries and reporting for our water action plan do not. As a result, the GSF we use for these credits differ.

The UC Office of the President and its annual sustainability data collection and reporting from campuses requires reporting in OGSF50 (which includes 50% of the outside), so we use that for IC-2 and our water action plan.

Other GSF/data boundaries contacts: Valerie Fanning (EH&S); Dave Weil (Carbon Neutrality and Sustainability); Mike Dayton and Anna Levitt (Medical Centers)
