Research Overview

My doctoral research examines why companies fail to respond to climate change. I contribute to this timely, increasingly important and acknowledged field of research by specifically focusing on barriers to business interaction that impede responding to climate change. To do so, I adopt a network approach (Industrial Marketing and Purchasing Group) to analyse empirical insights gained from multiple in-depth case studies in the context of the UK Energy supply sector.
