In honor of the theme
of Spitzer Forum 2007 and Hillel's growing institutional commitment to sustainability, Spitzer Forum will now be CARBON NEUTRAL
Hillel is offsetting
all of the carbon dioxide emissions of our conference with the help of our partners at Carbonfund.org
. Thanks to this process, Spitzer Forum 2007 will have no lasting footprint on the environment!What is involved in the offsetting process?
For each ton of carbon dioxide we emit through our use of energy, Carbonfund.org will reduce a ton of carbon dioxide emissions in another location through investment in projects that promote renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reforestation.
