Walking the talk on global and social impact

Some of you have asked what we'll do about the carbon emissions generated by students flying around the globe to fulfill their Global Experience Requirement.

We estimate that this requirement will generate up to 900 tons of CO2, which is about as much as 192 of the average world citizen would generate. In response, the Stanford GSB took a proactive approach and has partnered with TerraPass to offset the carbon emissions through project investments in wind power, methane capture, industrial efficiency, and more.

BTW, we also buy TerraPass offsets for Admit Weekend, making those events carbon-neutral.
