Marit is an economist with a PhD from the University of Oslo and a MSc from the University of Stockholm.

Her dissertation is on Norwegian firms’ responses to government policies, such as environmental taxes, tradable and non-tradable emission quotas, technology standards or R&D subsidies. To investigate the drivers of green technologies, polluting emissions, etc., she uses micro econometric (statistical) methods.

Moreover, she is involved in research on individuals' attitudes towards climate instruments, climate adaptation at the local, regional and national level, as well as the use of climate budgets in Norwegian municipalities. She also has experience from a national analysis and intelligence center (NTAES), using micro level registry data from several agencies, as well as interviews with agency employees, interest groups and experts, to inform agency leaders.


  • ACT - Public responses to climate policy instruments ACT will establish the first scientifically based annual survey tracking Norwegians’ attitudes and actions in response to climate policy instruments.
  • Sustainable Edge: climate risk assessment for companies The Norwegian real estate company Entra is the first company in Norway to have its revenues, investments and governance structure assessed in shades of green or brown in line with the updated Shades of Green methodology. The methodology has been developed in the ‘Sustainable Edge’ project in cooperation with leading Norwegian financial institutions, CICERO Shades of Green and ENOVA (the Norwegian public energy enterprise).
