We work with partners to share, value and showcase the role and power of business schools in meaningfully taking action to address the climate emergency.

Collaborating for climate leadership

At the United Nations Climate Conference, COP26, in Glasgow in November 2021 eight leading European business schools joined together to collaborate in supporting business leaders who will act to address the climate emergency.

The founding members of Business Schools for Climate Leadership (BS4CL) are Saïd Business School, Cambridge Judge Business School, HEC Paris, IE Business School, IESE Business School, INSEAD, International Institute for Management Development and London Business School. Collectively, we train more than 55,000 students and executives per year, and are stewards of alumni bodies in excess of 400,000 people.  

At COP27 in 2022 six leading African business schools joined the Business Schools for Climate Leadership community. The Cairo Declaration for Business Schools for Climate Leadership Africa (BS4CL Africa) recognised the critical role higher education can play in addressing climate change. The African Chapter of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) includes: the School of Business at The American University in Cairo, ESCA Ecole de Management in Morocco, the Institute of Business Science in South Africa, Lagos Business School in Nigeria, the School of Tourism and Hospitality at Strathmore University in Kenya and Stellenbosch Business School in South Africa

In December 2023, at COP28 in Dubai our community expanded yet again to include eight distinguished PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education) Business Schools from the Middle East: University of Dubai, Canadian University Dubai, Zayed University, Hult International Business School, American University of Beirut, American University of Kuwait, Qatar University, and Sultan Qaboos University.
