Researcher with Tenure
About

Forthcoming on Business Strategy and the Environment: “Paving the Road towards Eco-effectiveness: Exploring the Link between GHG Emissions and Firm Performance”, with Stefano Pogutz and Angelo Russo. In this article, we investigate the drivers that lead to an increase in the firm's environmental impact under the conditions of increasing market performance by the firm.

Research interests

My current research questions focus on, first, which are the drivers and the strategic implications of sustainability adoption by companies; second, how corporate purposes and organisational forms (e.g., B Corps) influence strategies of firms; third, how business models can be changed to mitigate external impact and improve a firm’s performance.
