INDS 4500: Fall 2021

This project is an industrial design studio exploration.

At the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester, the senior ID studio was tasked with exploring urban micro-logistics for the Toyota design competition. I began to explore carbon emission impacts of various companies, and the idea for Earth Audit emerged.

Many companies are under pressure from consumers to pledge carbon neutrality by 2030-2050. But how do those sustainability goals actually become fully implemented into action?

Earth Audit is a [proposed] 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, focused on evaluating corporate sustainability initiatives. 

Our goal is achieving a carbon-neutral planet through urgent, meaningful change, starting with corporate accountability and transparent consumer education.

The educational component of Earth Audit is centered around carbon credits and how they are used by companies to publicly offset emissions.
