Carbon Offsets for Air Travel

Putney invests in a carbon offset program to cover greenhouse gas emissions from all student and leader group flights. We work directly with Vermont-based NativeEnergy to identify and invest in community-scale and sustainable projects that would not otherwise be realized.

This year’s offset contributions will help fund a project to manufacture sustainable construction bricks in Madhya Pradesh, India. These blocks, called “autoclaved aerated concrete” (AAC), are more energy efficient than traditional concrete used in construction projects, and the manufacture of AAC generates 50% less greenhouse emissions than concrete.
