December 2018 - Present
The City of Boston has pledged to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. As part of its mitigation effort, the City is collaborating with the Boston Green Ribbon Commission (GRC) and the Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) at Boston University to produce a Carbon Free Boston (CFB) report in 2019. The Carbon Free Boston team—including GRC and ISE—have contracted with the Applied Economics Clinic (AEC) to conduct an assessment of social equity in the context of specific mitigation actions assessed in the 2019 CFB report. Researcher Bryndis Woods, Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD, and additional AEC staff are preparing a companion social equity report to accompany the CFB report.
