As part of the Rubenstein School Climate Initiative, we have begun to track faculty and student flights. A fund has been established to offset the impact of these trips. Its purpose is to support locally-based energy efficiency, renewable energy, and carbon sequestration initiatives.

Air travel has significant climate impacts; a single, round trip cross country flight releases the same carbon dioxide (and CO2 equivalents) as burning over 200 gallons of gasoline, per passenger. 

On this website, you can learn about the fund, monitor the fund balance, and log your flights (Rubenstein School faculty and graduate students only)

Thanks for your participation!
