In 2017, Yale University adopted an internal carbon charge across its campus, becoming one of the first universities in the United States to do so. Under Yale’s pioneering program, buildings throughout the university are charged $40 per ton of carbon dioxide that is emitted as a result of the energy they consume. On March 29th, the Guarini Center will host Casey Pickett, Director of Yale’s Carbon Challenge, for a conversation about the lessons learned from Yale’s early experiences with carbon pricing and whether such a scheme is appropriate for adoption at other universities throughout the country.

Featured Speaker:

Casey Pickett, Director, Yale University’s Carbon Charge; former Director for Innovation, Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development

In conversation with:

Katrina Wyman, Sarah Herring Sorin Professor of Law, New York University School of Law
