Microsoft carbon fee program architect honored with environmental award

Tamara “TJ” DiCaprio, senior director of environmental sustainability at Microsoft, was awarded the 2014 C.K. Prahalad Award from the Corporate Eco Forum for her work as the chief architect and driving force behind Microsoft’s internal carbon fee program.

“Microsoft’s carbon fee program has proven to be one of the most innovative approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions at a major company, and TJ deserves major praise for shepherding the program from its earliest stages, gaining buy-in from key managers and stakeholders by making the business case,” said Corporate Eco Forum founder M.R. Rangaswami.

The award, given Tuesday, recognizes those who demonstrate “globally significant private sector action that exemplifies the fundamental connection between sustainability, innovation and long-term business success in a globalizing world.”
