Tinbergen Institute research fellows Sander Onderstal and Joël van der Weele are organizing the second edition of the Symposium on Markets & Sustainability (SMS2022) at Tinbergen Institute Amsterdam. SMS2022 is jointly organized by the U of Amsterdam, the U of Groningen, Vrije U Amsterdam, Wageningen U and Tinbergen Institute. The symposium will focus on Behavioral Economics and Environmental Decision Making.

At SMS2022, researchers from different fields of economics and business present their recent research on these topics and discuss how it contributes to addressing sustainability challenges. The focus will be on environmental economics, corporate social responsibility, and sustainable operations management but other perspectives to explore sustainable consumer and firm behavior, such as psychological and consumer behavior research, will also be highlighted.
