Climate is our Business – Replay
HEC Paris is convinced that global warming must be kept below 2 degrees Celsius, and that businesses have a major role to play in achieving this goal. It therefore rallied the entire HEC Paris community together - students, professors, administrative staff, alumni, the foundation, companies and other partner organizations - to create an event that marks a turning point in HEC’s commitment to this issue: Climate is our business.
The event – co-organized by HEC Paris, it’s SnO Centre and HEC Alumni – took place on October 1st 2015.
Our partners are pleased to share the videos, reports of the workshops and related articles of this stimulating event.
The 2° Challenge, Climate is our Business”, organized by HEC Paris community in anticipation of the COP21 event in Paris, was opened by Hervé Le Treut, member of the Scientific Committee of The Shift Project, climatologist and IPCC member
