The Tribe Carbon Fund
Project Leader: John Vaughn '20
Advisor: Nathaniel Throckmorton, Assistant Professor of Economics
William & Mary offers a unique carbon offset program where 100% of funds go towards energy reducing projects on our historic campus. Carbon offset programs allow people to counteract their carbon footprint by donating to projects that reduce CO2 emissions. The Tribe Carbon Fund members are working to update the webpage so W&M departments may offset their emissions, particularly travel emissions. For meeting information, contact CAS Co-chair [[v|jadelbene, James DelBene]].
