Program Leaders

The design and development of this certificate is the result of a collaborative effort between faculty and staff from the Yale School of Management, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and Yale College, as well as a diverse group of industry advisors and content contributors.

Daniel Gross, private equity investor and lecturer at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, leads the program in collaboration with Dan Esty (Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and Yale Law School), Michael Oristaglio (Yale College, Geology and Geophysics), and Richard Kauffman (Yale School of Management).

The program also draws heavily on feedback and contributions from experts from Yale alumni networks and from CBEY’s industry partners to serve as either guest lecturers, interviewees, or advisors.

Partner organizations include the Yale Initiative on Sustainable Finance, the Connecticut Green Bank, the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Public Utilities Regulatory Authority, Covenant Solar, Inclusive Prosperity Capital, and the Coalition for Green Capital.
