Dr Alperen Gözlügöl quoted in WSJ on California carbon emission law

Dr Alperen Gözlügöl was recently quoted in a Wall Street Journal article about the impact of California's new legislation that forces businesses to report on carbon emissions.

“You [currently] have this dark part of the economy where there is no transparency and therefore there is no transparency-related discipline,” Gözlügöl said. “Disclosure makes it easier for these stakeholders to put pressure on companies.”
