Operating from campuses in Lille, Nice, Paris, London and Singapore, EDHEC Business School is ranked in the top ten of European business schools. With more than 110 nationalities represented in its student body, some 50,000 alumni in 130 countries, and learning partnerships with 290 institutions worldwide, it is truly international.
For over 20 years, EDHEC Business School has been pursuing an ambitious research policy that combines academic excellence with practical relevance. Spearheaded by EDHEC-Risk Institute, this original research policy aims to make EDHEC Business School an academic institution of reference for decision makers in a small number of areas in which it has reached critical mass in terms of expertise and research results. This ambition is delivered by furthering academic research in these areas while simultaneously highlighting its practical implications and applications to decision makers. The approach may be complemented by strategic partnerships or business ventures that can accelerate the transfer of scientific innovation to the industry and financially benefit the School and its constituencies.
Marking the priority assigned by the School to sustainability issues and building on its research programmes exploring the relationships between climate change and finance, EDHEC-Risk Institute will become EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute in the Fall of 2022.
Mission and ambitions
The mission of EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute is to help private and public decision makers manage climate-related financial risks and make the best use of financial tools to support the transition to low-emissions and climate-resilient economies.
Building upon the expertise and industry reputation developed by EDHEC-Risk Institute, the core ambition of EDHEC-Risk Climate is to become the leading academic reference helping long-term investors manage the asset pricing and investment management implications of climate change and adaptation and mitigation efforts. EDHEC-Risk Climate also aims to play a noted role helping financial supervisors and policy makers assess climate-related risks in the financial system and understand their links with the real economy and advising on policy and financial tools to mitigate those risks and optimise the contribution of finance to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
