The Climate & Earth Center at the S&O Institute of HEC Paris is very pleased to invite you to the 2nd edition of the S&O Climate Day on May 23, 2023 on HEC campus, all day long.
Addressing the climate emergency creates major challenges for business leaders and policy makers. The objective of this HEC Climate Day is to bring together HEC students, researchers, experts, external guests from partner companies, as well as alumni, and staff members to discuss strategic orientations, potential solutions, and ongoing achievements to respond to these challenges.
The lectures and panel discussions will focus on themes such as net-zero pathways, transitioning from fossil fuels to renewables, new green industrial policies and implications for business models.
Join us to explore success stories of net-zero transition and learn how policy can drive business transformation.
