Sam Gledhill. Currently, Sam is focused on a carbon offset intelligence project; working with carbon credit data to try and facilitate greater transparency in Voluntary Carbon Markets.
He studied Economics and Management at the University of Oxford where his research across both honour schools focused on how climate issue engagement can be improved at the individual, organisational and systems level. While studying Behavioural Economics, he has investigated how norms anchor beliefs about peer group behaviour, and how this can impact an individual’s propensity to materially support climate change mitigation efforts.
His thesis, currently under review for publication, looks to determine what aspects of organisational leadership are best suited to supporting corporate climate action. He has developed a model for climate leadership that matches key barriers to corporate climate action with specific leadership practices best suited to overcoming them.
