Tracy Van Holt is a Research Associate Professor at NYU Stern. Since 2017 she has been leading academic research at the Center for Sustainable Business.

At the start of her career, Tracy spent many years in the field learning how people at the beginning of many commodity chains live and work, and adapt to environmental and market changes. Now her research examines more deeply how companies are working to solve sustainability and wellbeing challenges in their supply chains, and how investors evaluate environmental, social, and governance issues in companies. Her publications have appeared in Journal of Business Management and Strategy, Journal of International Business and Policy, Science of the Total Environment, among others.
