Find out how companies can take action to tackle climate change and understand the related risks and opportunities.

Objectifs pédagogiques

This course aims to give students a comprehensive overview of the topic of climate change in the corporate sector. Students will learn:

  • To what extent bold climate action from the private sector is a necessary condition to limit global warming below +1.5°C/+2°C
  • How companies can assess their climate impact through robust carbon footprint assessment methodologies (GHG Protocol, ISO14064, Bilan Carbone, etc.)
  • Why and how companies should set emissions reduction targets in line with climate science, and establish inclusive and ambitious action plans to respect these trajectories
  • How companies can reinvent their business models in order to maximize their compatibility with a low-carbon economy
  • How companies can act beyond their own value chain to boost the emergence of a net-zero global system
  • What classical “greenwashing” practices companies should avoid, and how to be vigilant as a company employee, consumer or citizen
  • What power and responsibilities individuals have towards the climate emergency
