Distinct Analyses, One Sustainable Direction: Students and Faculty Share Insights from U-M’s Carbon Neutrality Push

Tasked with identifying opportunities for U-M to achieve net-zero carbon emissions, the President’s Commission on Carbon Neutrality brings together students, staff, and faculty from across the university to develop and recommend bold, transferrable, and sustainable solutions. Join student researchers from the commission’s various analysis teams, as well as co-chairs Stephen Forrest and Jennifer Haverkamp, for a panel discussion on what it means for U-M to pursue carbon neutrality. Students will share their distinct expertise on buildings, commuting, campus culture, food, and mobility electrification, and answer questions from the U-M community. Attendees will learn how they can contribute ideas and get involved.

Also, in a related Earthfest feature, this timeline showcases some of the carbon accounting and emissions reduction work that students, faculty, administrators, and staff members have undertaken over the past 20 years, paving the way for the university’s continuing net-zero push.
