This report examines the potential role of carbon offsets in meeting Duke University and other North Carolina universities' commitments to become climate neutral. We convened a spring semester course to research Duke's potential demand for offsets, identify the types of standards and policies Duke will need to adopt to transparently and credibly use offsets twoard climate neutrality and the potential institutional models for engagement in offsets.
