SUMMARY:

Announcing the winners of this year's Carbon Reduction Challenge at Georgia Tech. A collaboration between the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business and the Georgia Tech Global Change Program.

DESCRIPTION:

Since 2017, students from Georgia Tech and other colleges and universities in the state have competed in the Carbon Reduction Challenge (“Challenge”), a program that supports summer interns and co-op participants in becoming sustainability ambassadors in their workplaces. On top of their regular duties across diverse roles, participants volunteer to research and pitch carbon- and cost-saving measures for their employers. Thanks to the students’ hard work, dedication, and compelling proposals, the first three years of the Challenge have identified projects with the potential to deliver over 30 million pounds of avoided CO2 emissions and large savings for partner organizations due to avoided energy costs.
