Adam Fishman

Adam is an Associate at BSR (Business for Social Responsibility). Adam graduated with a Masters of Environmental Management (MEM) from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (FES) in 2018, where his work focused on how businesses and other non-state actors can accelerate implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement.

Pursuant to this aim, Adam spent summer 2017 working for two organizations: the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and Conservation International, examining the opportunity for businesses via desk research on corporate sustainability initiatives and through on-the-ground stakeholder engagement in Kenya, Botswana and South Africa.

Before coming to Yale, Adam worked at World Resources Institute (WRI) since 2013, primarily as the Project Coordinator for their SDG Delivery Team. He continues with WRI remotely from New Haven as a part-time Research Analyst. Prior to WRI, Adam spent a year in Copenhagen, Denmark, as Program Assistant for the Danish Institute for Study Abroad's Sustainability & Environment department. He holds a BA from Wesleyan University, where he double majored in Environmental Studies and Government, with a concentration in international politics.
