Climate is our Business – Replay

Logo The 2°Challenge HD

Context :

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.
