UBC Sauder School of Business: Centre for Climate and Business Solutions (CCBS)

The Centre for Climate and Business Solutions at UBC Sauder School of Business is a dynamic hub for climate-focused business education and problem-driven research. Grounded in robust research and a commitment to innovation and partnership, the Centre is dedicated to transforming ambitious sustainability goals into practical, actionable strategies, fostering a climate-positive future. Central to its mission are three interlinked strategies: accelerating business talent into climate careers, driving climate solutions in partnership with global industries, and convening thought leaders to crystallize complex climate issues into actionable strategies. These strategies form the foundation of the Centre’s initiatives, steering businesses and policymakers towards sustainable, effective outcomes.
