Over 10 student teams have worked diligently throughout the summer to design, and implement wherever possible, a strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save money for a large variety of partner organizations, ranging from large corporations to NGO’s to governmental. This summer, the students are on track to achieve the largest set of reductions in the history of the Challenge, accompanied by huge cost savings for their partners.
As such, the student-led projects illustrate how public-private partnerships can accelerate the identification of win-win solutions that shrink carbon emissions while delivering economic value.
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.
