Just for fun: Environmental impact of March Madness

Booz Allen Hamilton, a management and technology consulting firm, has released a tool that figures out the environmental impact of the NCAA tournament based on which bracket wins.

Based on the firm’s analysis:

  • The bracket with Louisville winning the tournament would have the smallest carbon footprint in the men’s tournament
  • The bracket with St. Mary’s winning the tournament would have the largest carbon footprint in the men’s tournament
  • The bracket with Maryland winning the tournament would have the smallest carbon footprint in the women’s tournament
  • The bracket with UCLA winning the tournament would have the largest carbon footprint impact in the women’s tournament

Check out the carbon footprint of a tournament win by your favorite team.

Booz Allen's website has the complete list of teams, ranked by carbon footprint, and interactive brackets that you can use to see how your picks would affect the environment.
