Leading African business schools launch climate leadership initiative (ZAWYA)

Cairo – At the Deans Roundtable hosted by the School of Business at The American University in Cairo (AUC) yesterday, deans of six leading African business schools and representatives from the African Chapter of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and European Business Schools for Climate Leadership (BS4CL) announced the launch of the Business Schools for Climate Leadership (BS4CL Africa) initiative. BS4CL Africa brings together schools of business in building a collaborative framework for climate action to transform business education curricula to match the needs and adapt to the realities of the African continent. The initiative will also invite contributions from the private sector and civil society and will mirror the ambitions of the UN Climate Conference (COP27) taking place in parallel in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. BS4CL Africa is based on the model inspired by the BS4CL group, which was initiated by eight leading business schools in Europe at COP26 last year. Click here o read full article
