Why are Tuck students going to attend the Copenhagen conference?

Climate change and energy scarcity are fundamental issues of our generation.  We are a group of eight second year students at Tuck who will be travelling to Copenhagen to be part of United National Climate Change Conference. At Tuck, we believe it is imperative for current and future business leaders to understand the implications of the decisions made today on business and society. The COP15 conference seeks to set an ambitious global agreement to address climate change.  A sound understanding of this agreement is necessary to enable business leaders to incorporate the impact of climate change on their business plans and mitigate potential threats to their organizations, to people, and the planet.

As an international delegation we have seen how the climate change debate is having an impact on the decisions made by businesses around the world.  We look forward to learning from the perspectives of other conference attendees and to sharing our experiences and views on these issues with Tuck and the greater Dartmouth community.
