Institute for Policy Integrity kicks off Conversations with Eco-Innovators
On October 6, NYU School of Law's Institute for Policy Integrity joined with Conservation International to present the first of a discussion series entitled Conversations with Eco-Innovators. The initial session, "Greenhouse Gas Reduction: Beyond Legislation," focused on the ways environmentalists can address climate change while congressional action on the issue is stalled.
IPI's Executive Director Michael Livermore engaged Conservation International’s Chief Advisor for Climate and Water Michael Totten with a description of regulatory approaches to greenhouse gases. Totten focused on steps that businesses such as Wal-Mart have taken to curb their emissions as well as their costs, the role of new technology in energy efficiency, and how new information technology can be used to leverage public action against climate change.
