Kyle Kornack, S’13, graduated from Northeastern with a BA in environmental studies, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a drive for social change. With fellow alumni, David Cooch, S’13, and Liam Madden, S’12, he co-founded, and is the executive director of Green Gas, a nonprofit organization that uses innovative fundraising to offset carbon emissions at the gas pump. Transportation is the largest driver of greenhouse gas emissions in the US, and these donations directly support tree-planting and climate action projects, allowing users to drive “carbon neutral.” Kornack and Cooch were named in the 2019 Forbes 30 under 30 Social Entrepreneurs list.
