Mike Toffel's research focuses on operational discipline by examining companies' environmental, occupational safety, and quality programs and performance. His work seeks to identify which types of programs distinguish participating companies as having superior environmental, safety, or quality management or performance, and which of these programs help companies improve their performance in these domains. His work ranges from academic articles based on econometric analyses of large datasets to case studies of individual companies. His work on quality management systems and environmental management systems has been profiled by LRQA Business Assurance, Quality Progress, and the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board.

MapEcos has been profiled in The Economist, CNN, the World Bank, and HBS Working Knowledge.

His articles have been published in Administrative Science Quarterly, Management Science, Strategic Management Journal (SMJ), Journal of Economics and Management Strategy (JEMS); Journal of Law, Economics and Organization (JLEO); California Management Review (CMR); Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T); and Journal of Industrial Ecology.
