Work with thought leaders and academic experts in environmental science

Companies can benefit from working with environmental science researchers in several ways. These experts can provide valuable insights into environmental impact, help develop sustainable practices, conduct research on renewable energy sources, and assist in environmental policy development. They can also help companies navigate environmental regulations, assess and mitigate environmental risks, and provide expertise in environmental impact assessments. Collaborating with environmental science researchers can enhance a company's sustainability efforts, improve its reputation, and contribute to a more environmentally conscious business model.

Dr. Joachim Scholz

Buffalo, New York, United States of America
The world's first Augmented Reality Marketing professor
Research Expertise (1)
I am a marketing professor who specializes in augmented/extended realities, metaverse marketing, brand storytelling, and influencer marketing. I am a public speaker and consultant who helps your brand thrive in today's and tomorrow's new realities. <br> \~ ⨏ \~ <br> MY PASSION is to explore augmented reality’s strategic potential for marketing: I published the first-ever conceptual article on AR marketing, which won Article of the Year award and is one of the most-cited publications about this topic. I have taught AR since 2015 as part of my social media and digital marketing courses at Cal Poly. At Brock University, I developed and teach the world’s first dedicated Augmented Reality Marketing courses for undergraduate as well as MBA students. <br> \~ ⚬ \~ <br> MY RESEARCH combines ethnographic methods with socio-cultural frameworks to cut through the complexities of marketing and consumption: I explore how augmented reality can deepen consumer/brand relationships, how it helps customers feel more competent and autonomous, how Pokémon GO players co-create and transport into hybrid-realities, how managers can deploy AR initiatives, and how various types of augmented realities offer different strategic opportunities for brands. My social media research explores how marketers can build their brands in today’s polarized and tribal societies by fighting back against online critics. <br> \~ × \~ <br> I LOVE building bridges between academia and the broader business community: I'm a member of Adweek's Academic Council and serve on the advisory board of Schulich’s Future of Marketing Institute. I regularly publish research-driven insights in Adweek, MKTGsquad, and other AR-specific publications. I provide expertise for marketing agencies and consult wine, CPG and technology companies in the US and Canada on branding and augmented reality marketing. I decipher the babel and help people see the big picture. <br> \~ 🦊 \~

Lea-Rachel Kosnik is a Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She received her BA and MA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and her PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research focuses on renewable energy and climate change, and she is considered a leading expert on the topic of hydroelectric energy generation in the U.S., and hydropower regulation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. In recent years her research has expanded to include analyses of the academic economics profession itself, including with a focus on gender issues and DEI initiatives. Methodologically, her skill set includes textual analysis and natural language processing, along with traditional econometric techniques. In 2016 she received an honorable mention for article of the year from *Contemporary Economic Policy*, and in 2022 she gave the keynote address to the Illinois Economics Association. Dr. Kosnik is perhaps best known (in a service capacity) as the Association of Environmental and Resource Economist’s (AERE’s) Midwest representative, annually organizing the full track of AERE-sponsored environmental sessions at the Midwest Economic Association meetings.

Example environmental science projects

How can companies collaborate more effectively with researchers, experts, and thought leaders to make progress on environmental science?

Developing Sustainable Packaging Solutions

An environmental science researcher can work with a company to develop sustainable packaging solutions that reduce waste and minimize environmental impact. This can include researching and implementing biodegradable materials, optimizing packaging design for efficiency, and finding innovative ways to reduce packaging waste.

Assessing Environmental Risks in Supply Chains

Environmental science researchers can help companies assess and mitigate environmental risks in their supply chains. They can conduct environmental impact assessments, identify potential risks such as pollution or deforestation, and provide recommendations for sustainable practices and alternative suppliers.

Researching Renewable Energy Sources

Collaborating with an environmental science researcher can help companies explore and implement renewable energy sources. Researchers can conduct studies on the feasibility and effectiveness of different renewable energy technologies, provide guidance on implementation strategies, and help companies transition to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.

Developing Environmental Policy and Compliance Strategies

Environmental science researchers can assist companies in developing environmental policies and compliance strategies. They can help navigate complex environmental regulations, ensure compliance with local and international standards, and provide guidance on best practices for minimizing environmental impact.

Conducting Environmental Impact Assessments

Environmental science researchers can conduct comprehensive environmental impact assessments for companies. This includes evaluating the potential environmental effects of projects or operations, identifying areas of concern, and providing recommendations for mitigating negative impacts and promoting sustainability.
