Mike’s update

Effective June 30, 2024, Mike Mahoney will be stepping down as Chief Executive of the E-liability Institute. He will continue to advise Professors Bob Kaplan and Karthik Ramanna on the Institute’s work as he pursues his focus on driving climate innovation in businesses and institutions.

“It has been a great honor and my privilege to collaborate with Bob and Karthik to advance E-liability as the global gold standard for carbon accounting. I’m proud of what the Institute has accomplished to date and look forward to seeing even greater success in the future,” said Mike. 

Over the past year, the Institute has focused on building its pipeline of pilot implementations, leading to the publication of 6 case studies with 4 case studies scheduled to be published in 2024 with an additional 30 organizations in various stages of pilot implementation. The Institute is engaged with leading technology firms and assurance providers to support the transition from pilot to scale adoption. The Institute hosted its first conference on E-liability in June 2023, followed in February by a workshop on carbon content co-organized with the IMF, BIS, Eurostat, Deutsche Bundesbank, and Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government.

“We are grateful to Mike for his leadership and his many contributions to the Institute over the past 15 months,” said Karthik. “He has helped us drive scale at a critical stage. And he successfully translated our academic concepts into practical and actionable solutions for finance, procurement, supply chain and sustainability leaders.” Bob added, “Mike has established important new relationships between the E-liability Institute and global corporations, technology and assurance firms, NGOs, and governmental organizations. His leadership has driven visibility for E-liability and E-asset carbon accounting, helping us demonstrate how accurate and auditable measurements can drive corporate and governmental decarbonization initiatives . We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
