Rigorous evidence and research is crucial, especially at this critical turning point for nature and society.
We believe it is our responsibility—as the management school of MIT—to apply academic rigor to real-world problems. Armed with science, we can solve even the greatest sustainability problems—and take hold of opportunities for a stronger, more equitable future.
Led by world-renowned faculty co-directors Roberto Rigobon, Society of Sloan Fellows Professor of Management, and John Sterman, Jay W. Forrester Professor of Management, we are elevating the field by bringing rigorously tested, data-driven insights to bear on serious sustainability challenges.
Whether it’s through interactive climate simulations or a more effective way to measure an organization’s environmental, social and governmental performance (ESG), our world-class researchers collaborate with industry, governments, and organizations to solve problems and seize new opportunities.
