Key Objective: 8.7 Local Offsets Program
As stated in the Transportation chapter, we are interested in pursuing local carbon offset programs, in part to mitigate greenhouse gases (GHG) generated as a result of university air travel but primarily as a way to educate faculty and staff about air emissions.
In collaboration with local communities, we plan to adhere to the following steps in pursuit of a results-driven carbon offsets program:
By the end of FY22, inventory available peer institutions and offset programs through a literature review.
By the end of FY23, develop a plan with wide stakeholder engagement both on and off campus.
During FY24, initiate the finalized plan.
Meredith Moore and Tyler Swanson of iSEE met with Alicia Freter of the ACES Study Abroad office on August 31st to discuss options for developing a carbon offset program for students studying abroad in the college of ACES.
