Net Impact Spotlights MIIS Efforts to Achieve Carbon Neutrality by 2016
October 7, 2010
Clayton Snyder (MAIEP/MBA ’10), former leader of the Monterey chapter of Net Impact, and current manager of environmental project fulfillment at CBS, is the featured member profiled in the newest edition of Leading Business, a Net Impact publication. As a dual-degree MBA and International Environmental Policy student at the Monterey Institute, Clayton took a very active role in creating a strategy to fulfill the Institute’s goal to become carbon neutral by 2016. He encourages other students to become involved in “greening” efforts at their schools because: “It’s a great way to gain sustainability management experience before you enter the corporate world.”
Net Impact is an international nonprofit organization spanning six continents, with a mission to inspire, educate and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.
