UB has committed to get to carbon neutrality by 2030. This ambitious goal needed your help, and you answered the call.
In the summer of 2021, Blackstone Launchpad and UB Sustainability asked students to bring their passion to combat climate change, creativity to solve problems, and love for UB to the test in designing solutions to bring our greenhouse gas emissions down to zero. We discussed sustainable transportation, renewable energy, food systems, waste reduction, carbon offsets and carbon pricing.
Students formed teams that developed climate action solutions for our university. Over the course of three weeks, they connected with experts, honed their ideas and ultimately pitched their work to a panel of judges.
