The London School of Business and Finance Deepens Commitment to Climate Action

The London School of Business and Finance Deepens Commitment to Climate Action

The London School of Business and Finance has recently become a Signatory to the CANIE Accord, a public commitment to climate action that was developed in consultation with leaders from international education peak bodies, associations, higher education institutions, university networks, media, national governments, corporations, supranational bodies, scholarship bodies, and more. The CANIE Accord, and accompanying Glasgow Paper, represent the international education sector’s climate ambitions and commitment to align with scientific recommendations and global climate agreements.  By becoming a Signatory to the CANIE Accord, The London School of Business and Finance is strengthening and accelerating the international education sector’s collective response to the climate crisis.

Dr. Shahnaz Hamid, the Dean of the London School of Business and Finance, has stated, "By endorsing the CANIE Accord for climate change and sustainability, we commit to fostering a future where our present actions nurture a world of environmental stewardship and sustainable progress for future generations. Embracing the CANIE Accord empowers our institution to foster innovation, equipping our students with the skills and mindset essential for success in a global economy focused on sustainability. Moreover, it strengthens our reputation as a forward-thinking institution dedicated to driving positive change, attracting top talent, and maintaining impactful partnerships with like-minded organisations worldwide."

The Climate Action Network for International Educators (CANIE) is a volunteer grassroots initiative formed by international education practitioners from around the world who see the need and opportunity for the sector to take bold climate action. Through open-access resources, specialized events, networking and information sharing, CANIE aims to mobilize the full power of the international education community to address our contribution to the climate crisis.

‘’I applaud The London School of Business and Finance on showing such leadership in our sector’s transition to more climate-conscious operations,” said CANIE co-founder and President of the Board, Ailsa Lamont. “By signing up to the CANIE Accord, international education leaders commit to real, practical action to combat global temperature rise and, crucially, to doing so in a way that is grounded in social justice.’’

CANIE activities include Climate Action Week, a global summit held annually in November in conjunction with the United Nations global climate talks.  CANIE’s robust network of volunteers also work to address the disproportionate impacts of the climate crisis through an active Climate Justice working group, they produce the informative CANIE Climate Dialogues podcast, Climate Action Catalyst Newsletter, and curate an open-access resource library.
