Yale University has taken an innovative approach to internal carbon pricing. During the 2015 to 2016 academic year, a pilot project in 20 buildings tested the design and implementation of four information and incentive schemes. This coming year Yale is expanding its experiment to 60 buildings, representing over 100,000 tCO2e, and focusing on two pricing mechanisms. As the first academic member of the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, Yale looks forward to hosting an open conversation on its carbon charge and sharing its lessons with business and government leaders.
Moderated by Tom Kerr of the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, the discussion will be structured in two parts:
- Leadership dialogue - featuring Ben Polak, Yale University Provost and Tim Pavlis, VP for Strategic Analysis and Institutional Research at Yale
- A deep-dive on implementation with the Yale Carbon Charge Project and operations teams.
With the increasing trend for leading organizations to implement internal carbon prices as part of their sustainability and climate goals, we believe this is an exciting and tangible learning opportunity. We encourage participants to contribute to this live interactive conversation with your questions.
