Carbon Conscious Study Abroad

Last year API introduced our first carbon offset program.

Earlier this year, API began our first external carbon footprint evaluation as part of our ongoing effort toward becoming a carbon-neutral company (results and recommendations pending).

Now, API is issuing an exciting challenge to our students… for every student that contributes toward the API carbon offset fund, API will match the contribution. That’s right – 2 for 1! Dr. Jayme Walenta of Carbon Clear (API’s carbon offset provider) spoke enthusiastically about this innitiatve.

“API’s commitment to promoting study abroad in an environmentally friendly manner is strengthened further by this announcement…  The funds generated by this program go to support carbon reduction projects in the developing world that both reduce greenhouse gases and improve the social livelihoods of residents. All projects students invest in are third party certified to either the Verified Carbon Standard (formerly the Voluntary Carbon Standard) or Gold Standard and meet strict international rules for additionally.”

We at API believe that every study abroad student should have a positive impact on their host culture and environment, and offsetting the emissions from one’s travel is quite literally the first step in this process! Students may elect to contribute toward this goal in their post-acceptance online forms, or by speaking with their API Program Manager.For more information on the API Carbon Offset Project, please visit the API website.

With research and planning, you can find a study abroad program that fits your budget. We believe in being up-front with what’s included and avoiding hidden fees.
