Professor Dieter Helm Knighted

Huge congratulations to Professor Dieter Helm who was knighted in the New Year 2021 Honours List for services to the environment, energy, and utilities policy. 

Professor Helm, a Fellow here at New College for over 30 years, is chairman of the government’s independent advisory body on natural capital. His work includes the 25-year environment plan which forms a key part of the Environmental Bill going through Parliament. 

Professor Helm said, ‘The recognition of a lifetime of work on public policy is a great honour. Oxford has given me the freedom to pursue my wider public policy interests in a way that few other institutions would have tolerated, and I am grateful for over 30 years of support from New College Fellows and Wardens.’

Arise, Sir Dieter!
