We are pleased to announce the appointment of Victoria Hurth as the Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network Chair.

Victoria Hurth will be replacing Michel Gueldry, who we warmly thank for his years of service as Chair. Michel Gueldry remains on the Board, and we know he will continue to be a key member of our Research Network for years to come.

Dr Victoria Hurth is Senior Associate at the University of Cambridge’s Institute for Sustainability Leadership and Visiting Fellow of Cambridge Judge Business School. She describes herself as a ‘pracademic’, taking a pragmatic interdisciplinary approach to the drivers and solutions of organisational responses to climate change and sustainability,. She has a Master’s in Environment and Development from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal and completed her PhD (Exeter) on the role of marketing as a driver of sustainable/unsustainable consumption. Her research and practice now focuses on purpose-driven organisations and the implications for culture, governance and strategy. She has been a British Council ‘Climate Change Ambassador’ and a climate change advisor for a UK MP. She is currently a member of the UN Task force for developing methodology for SDG indicator 12.6.1. and the Convenor of ISO37000 – the first global standard on Governance of Organisations.

We look forward to working with Victoria Hurth. We are confident that her knowledge, skills, and energy will be a tremendous leadership asset to the Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network.
