British Academy funding for new project on corporate climate action

I was awarded funding by the British Academy under their Small Grant scheme for a new research project that studies corporate climate action. The project titled “How Credible are Firms’ Voluntary Climate Commitments? An Empirical Analysis of Corporate Climate Action” will study the conditions under which firms’ voluntary commitments are likely to translate into sustained, corporate climate action rather than empty promises of greenwashing. The project will contribute to the literature on corporate climate action in national and international climate politics.
