Take on Global Warming, Pound by Pound
What is the Challenge?
Cool Capital Challenge unites individuals, schools, congregations, businesses, governments and other institutions to take a two-billion-pound bite out of the Capital Region's carbon dioxide emissions. The Challenge is like a fundraising campaign, only instead of pledging money, we are pledging the region's greenhouse gas emission reduction.
Be Part of the Solution, Take the Challenge
When you "Take the Challenge", you will be able to calculate your carbon footprint, learn and choose some energy efficient, money-saving actions to reduce it, calculate your carbon and money savings, and make a pledge to reduce your carbon emissions. Learn about the steps to take the challenge.
When pledging you will be joining all the people in the region that are making this commitment. Don't forget to allocate your savings to your favorite team or create a new team, learn about team creation here.
