Carbon Reduction Challenge Summer Finalist Expo

This summer, we re-centered the Carbon Reduction Challenge around COVID-19. Student participants have developed projects on behaviors and operations that have changed at their organizations during the pandemic, quantified the carbon reductions and cost savings of those changes, and put together recommendations for how their organization can support effective low-carbon work behaviors when the pandemic eases.

Please join us in celebrating their collective accomplishments at the Carbon Reduction Challenge Finalist Expo, when the top student teams will present their projects.
