Barbara Haya, a research fellow working with CITRIS Climate and the California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE) to ensure that the University of California meets its carbon neutrality goal, recently shared her expertise in two high-profile publications.

In a Washington Post story about steps to take to lower your carbon footprint, Haya explains the purpose of carbon offsets; in the Bloomberg piece, she argues that carbon offsets are a way that companies can claim to be decarbonizing without actually doing so.
