Summaries

Summary Sentence: Teams present plans to reduces businesses' carbon emissions and save money.

Full Summary: Carbon Reduction Challenge class enable sstudents participating in an internship or co-op to plan and implement a carbon reduction project with their employers. 

Please join the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business and the Georgia Tech School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences in our first summer cycle of the Carbon Reduction Challenge Final Poster Expo.

With support from the Ray C. Anderson Foundation NextGen Fund and the Scheller College of Business Dean’s Innovation Fund, Kim Cobb and Beril Toktay collaborated to expand Cobb’s successful Carbon Reduction Challenge class to enable students participating in an internship or co-op to plan and implement a carbon reduction project with their employers.

Individual students or a team took the initiative to identify and execute a plan that reduces their employer’s carbon emissions, most often saving their employer money, over the course of their internship. Project examples range from creating employee challenges to reduce their personal carbon emissions, to changes in building lighting schedules, to more capital-intensive projects such as HVAC modifications.

The winners of the Carbon Reduction Challenge will be decided based on i) the amount of carbon emissions avoided (whether actual or potential) and ii) the level of awareness fostered through the project.

The winning team(s) will be announced at the conclusion of the Finalist Poster Expo.

Refreshments will be available.
