Does the institution have policies and/or programs in place to reduce emissions from air travel?:

A brief description of the policies and/or programs:

Dickinson’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory and Climate Action Plan encompass air travel by faculty and staff that is paid for by the college and also air travel by students for study abroad that is paid for by the students. ACUPCC guidelines do not require that student air travel be included in its members’ commitments to climate neutrality. However, because global education and study abroad are a major emphasis of a Dickinson education, we have voluntarily included our students’ study abroad travel as part of our commitment to climate neutrality. We have not, as yet, implemented specific programs to tackle air travel emissions, but it is our policy as part of our Climate Action Plan to reduce and/or offset all emissions that are part of our carbon footprint, including emissions from air travel.
