ONZ Fellow Dr Conor Hickey awarded visiting fellowship at Harvard Business School

Apr 12, 2023

Oxford Net Zero Research Fellow Dr Conor Hickey has today been announced as one of five ‘Business in Global Society’ Visiting Fellows at Harvard Business School’s Institute for the Study of Business in Global Society (BiGS).

Dr Hickey of the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute is in a cohort of five visiting scholars who will focus exclusively on climate, and will temporarily relocate to Harvard to collaborate with faculty and researchers from multiple schools, initiatives and units within the university.

With significant experience researching corporate net-zero strategies, Dr Hickey plans to investigate the impact of delayed climate action on corporations. He’ll focus specifically on the sectors that currently have limited mitigation potential, such as aviation. By demonstrating the financial impact of delayed action, corporations may be more supportive of effective regulation, says Hickey. 

The announcement marks the second cohort of visiting fellows for the Institute for the Study of Business in Global Society and the visiting fellows are due to arrive on campus in July 2023.
