(near Grand Central Station)

Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy and the Canadian Consulate in New York City, hosted an event celebrating carbon-to-value innovators and investment. Phyllis Yaffe, Consul General of Canada; Richard Kauffman, Chairman of NYSERDA; and Marcius Extavour, Senior Director, Energy & Resources at XPRIZE, delivered keynote remarks as we brought together entrepreneurs, policymakers, and thought leaders working to create a circular carbon economy.

New policies, new technologies, and new enthusiasm for direct action have created fresh excitement and opportunities in turning CO2 into commercial value. The event featured high-level keynotes from national and global leaders and a networking reception featuring leading innovators, experts, entrepreneurs, scholars, and financiers working to make a new manufacturing base built on recycled CO2.


This event was open to press. Media inquiries or requests for interviews should be directed to Artealia Gilliard (ag4144@sipa.columbia.edu).
