On March 15th from 4:00-5:30pm, the Boston Green Ribbon Commission and Boston University are sponsoring a panel of climate change experts to discuss carbon pricing. The talk is open to the public and will be at Boston University’s Metcalf Trustee Center on the 9th floor of 1 Silber Way (go past the large tapestry on the right to find the elevators).
Titled “Reducing Emissions by Pricing Carbon: How Microsoft and Yale are leading the charge,” the panel will include TJ DiCaprio, the Senior Director of Environmental Sustainability at Microsoft, Casey Pickett, the Director of Carbon Change at Yale, Kenneth Pucker, former COO of Timberland and Lecturer at the Questrom School of Business, and be moderated by Andrew Revkin, Senior Reporter on Climate Change at ProPublica and former environmental reporter at The New York Times.
Some of the topics will include the results of Yale’s 2015/2016 pilot climate pricing program and the impacts of Microsoft’s carbon pricing program on the company's culture, emissions, investment in renewable energy, and millions of people around the world.
