For Support Of The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab At MIT

The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) strives to make development programs more effective by equipping policymakers with evidence from randomized evaluations. J-PAL does this by (a) increasing the quantity and quality of randomized evaluations; (b) promoting a culture of evaluation through training; and (c) encouraging policymakers to use research through outreach, promotion, and technical advising. With this grant, J-PAL will work to make randomized evaluations more robust and transparent, expand and improve its training programs, and deepen its partnerships with developing country governments.

for MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative's climate change mitigation and sustainability work  
The MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative aims to limit global warming emissions to protect the planet from the worst effects of human-induced climate change, and promote human prosperity and health around the world. One leverage point in reducing emissions is the re-allocation of capital. This work will provide information on financial institution carbon intensity that would be relevant to organizations in the United States; it will inform the following decisions: choice of investment targets for capital, choice of insurance companies for a range of business insurance services, choice of banks, and choice of investment options for employees in 401(k) retirement plans.
