Carbon Reduction Challenge
The Carbon Reduction Challenge is an initiative that empowers students to become lifelong champions of sustainable business in their organizations. We ask students who hold traditional internships and co-ops to identify, quantify, and obtain approval for a project at their place of employment that reduces both greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs. The Challenge has attracted students from across all majors at Georgia Tech, and in its latest cohorts, expanded to include students participating from five more regional universities. To date, the Challenge has engaged 75 students at 23 different organizations, and avoided emissions of over 20,000,000lbs of CO2.
