Abstract: 

The Environmental Markets Solutions Lab (emLab) team will conduct research on the initiatives and outcomes of the Walton Family Foundation (WFF) environmental programs and analyze the role that environmental markets play across the group’s environmental portfolio. As a final deliverable, we will develop a presentation in which we evaluate the successes and opportunities for growth across WFF’s environmental programs, and suggest how principles of environmental market design could be leveraged to improve future WFF interventions. In order to successfully create this final deliverable, our team will collaborate closely with WFF staff, soliciting their feedback and suggestions, over email and the phone, as needed.
