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:

While there is not a university-wide policy on reducing air travel emissions, specific departments and schools within the university have their own policies and practices. For example, the admissions department at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy purchased offsets for their department's air travel until 2009. While this practice is on hold for now, the student group Fletcher GREEN is trying to make offsets an option for students and the Fletcher community.
