Business and Environment is a featured research topic and an initiative at Harvard Business School.
The vital connection between the natural environment and the business world has long been a central focus of our research at HBS – from Richard Vietor
’s study of business-government relations in U.S. energy policy
in the 1980’s to Michael Porter
’s new concept of the relationship between the environment and competition
in the 1990’s. Today, our faculty members focus on corporate environmental strategy, operations and reporting; sustainable cities and infrastructure; the role of government and environmental policy; clean energy generation and demand-side energy efficiency; and the effective management of natural resources essential to human prosperity.
