Max is actively looking for viable local carbon offset projects that UCSB can hopefully help certify and acquire in order to contribute toward the goal of carbon neutrality in scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2025. Carbon offsets constitute a variety of projects, including biosequestration via carbon farming, urban forestry, methane capture and destruction, renewable energy projects, and carbon capture and storage. The ideal project includes greenhouse gas reduction, co-benefits that would help serve our community and contribute toward a model that other universities could follow by example. I believe carbon offsets are a valuable addition in our arsenal of tools in mitigating climate change.
