Two Words for College Grads: Carbon Emissions
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Many companies are trying to win over environmentalists these days by offsetting their carbon emissions. Businesses make a trade; they can pollute more if they pay others who don't. And so our last word in business today is two words, actually: carbon management. Soon you will be able to get a college degree in that.
Next year the University of East Anglia in the UK will launch the world's first business degree in reducing carbon emissions. The idea here is to train a new kind of manager for the so-called low-carbon economy.
