On February 18, Columbia Business School MBA students Donnel Baird ’13, Morris Cox ’13, Elmer Moore ’13, and Miklos Raibon ’13 won first place at the annual Net Impact Case Competition, which focuses on the intersection between sustainability and profitability. This year's competition was sponsored by Encana, the number one player in the natural gas market, and focused on the viability and controversy of fracking as a natural gas extraction process. The student teams examined how companies can leverage their impact and best practices to raise sustainability standards within a controversial industry. The case was of particular interest to the Columbia Business School students, as New York State will soon begin this controversial process near the water table that supplies New York City.
