Media Lab Flight Offsets

Air travel is a significant contributor to the overall carbon emissions of a research institution. The Media Lab's pilot carbon offsets program, generously funded by the Lab administration, is designed to raise awareness about the carbon emissions impact of air travel, and to help the Media Lab community better understand our carbon footprint. We encourage everyone in the Media Lab to participate by logging your lab-related flights! Read more about the pilot program here.

So far, the Media Lab has logged 346 flights that produced

834,999 kg of CO2

That's the equivalent of...


Homes' energy use for one year
