Mike's academic research focuses on the interaction of national and international environmental, social, and political policies, and strategic management. His articles have appeared in leading scholarly journals, and his research on the bottom-line effects of corporate greening received the 1998 Moskowitz Prize in Social Investing. He has received funding from the National Science Foundation to study international voluntary environmental regulation under the ISO 14000 standards and from the Dreyfus Foundation to write business cases that incorporate green chemistry issues. One case written under the Dreyfus Foundation grant and included in this collection, "Seventh Generation: Balancing Customer Expectations with Supply Chain Realities," won the 2007 oikos Sustainability Case Writing Competition.
