DukeEngage is an endeavor global in scope. In the last year alone, our participants and staff flew more than 4 million air miles to and from over two dozen countries. Our global reach calls upon us to minimize the impact of our travel on climate change. Thus, in collaboration with Sustainable Duke and the Duke Carbon Offsets Initiative, we are offering the students, faculty and staff of DukeEngage the opportunity to go carbon neutral with their travel. The carbon offsets program provides an immediate and tangible means to minimize one's carbon footprint through the purchase of a share of a North Carolina-based project for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Go here to learn about the DukeEngage offsets project, determine your own carbon footprint based on the miles you will fly this summer, and make a voluntary contribution to a greener planet by purchasing offsets for all or part of your travel.
