About MIT Climate Mitigation Solutions

In October 2015, MIT announced a goal to reduce campus greenhouse gas emissions by 32 percent by 2030, and currently plans to explore reaching the scientifically necessary goal of carbon neutrality.  The Plan for Action on Climate Change challenges the MIT community and partners to invent solutions that would help realize this goal, and harness the demonstration capacity of MIT to model, scale, and deploy innovative mitigation solutions. As MIT creates a path to reducing emissions over the next 15 years and beyond, we must consider not only what actions are necessary and feasible, but which will best harness the strengths of the MIT campus and community as a test bed for climate solutions.

MIT Climate Mitigation Solutions seeks entries into a current contest for picking winning ideas on how to successfully reduce on campus GHG emissions by 32% by 2030.  To enter, participants should visit the contest site
