BS4CL Climate Leadership Research Conference
Barcelona - June 1, 2023 - 8:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Business Schools for Climate Leadership (BS4CL) is a unique partnership between eight of Europe’s leading business schools to help present and future leaders combat the climate crisis facing the planet. The schools, which came together to launch their alliance at COP26 in Glasgow, are Cambridge Judge, HEC Paris, IE, IESE, IMD, INSEAD, LBS and Oxford Saïd.
The BS4CL Climate Leadership Research Conference will take place in person at IESE’s Barcelona campus on June 1, 2023 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and aims to facilitate and deepen interaction among business school researchers working on climate while forging collaborations and providing a platform to share the latest research across disciplines. We want to build a vibrant research community, and in doing so, trigger new opportunities for collaboration and impact.
Academic research is a core part of our contribution to fighting the climate crisis and therefore, this conference aspires to bring together researchers from across all BS4CL schools to support, ignite, and accelerate our joint research impact.
We would also like to extend an invitation for you to participate in the BS4CL Forum: Leading Decarbonization, scheduled for the following day on Friday, June 2, 2023. This engaging forum is designed to foster meaningful dialogue and collaboration between academic researchers in climate leadership and industry practitioners. By attending, you will have the opportunity to interact with experts, share your insights and contribute to the collective pursuit of solutions for a sustainable future.
