Business schools for climate leadership

Uniting to help shape climate leadership

In the run up to COP26 in Glasgow, eight business schools have joined together to equip present and future leaders to address climate change.

Business schools too must play their part as institutions that produce powerful ideas and leaders.

Business Schools for Climate Leadership (BS4CL) is a substantive collaboration of eight founding leading European business schools, joining together to help business leaders combat the climate crisis facing the planet. Deans of the eight schools—Cambridge Judge Business School, HEC Paris, IE Business School, IESE Business School, the Institute for Management Development (IMD), INSEAD, London Business School, and Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford—committed to jointly shoulder this responsibility.

BS4CL represents the beginnings of collective action across business schools starting with the founding members. As educators and researchers—as well as leading voices and stewards of powerful alumni bodies—we need to work together to incite, support, and mobilize our many stakeholders to protect humanity.
