Yale Center for Business and the Environment

The Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY) educates and inspires interdisciplinary leaders through business solutions to systemic environmental problems.

CBEY joins the strengths of two world-renowned graduate schools—the Yale School of the Environment (YSE) and the Yale School of Management (SOM)—with a global network of thought leaders and practitioners working at the interface of business and the environment. Home to the oldest and nationally preeminent joint-degree program in business and the environment, CBEY addresses the need for both environmentally-minded business leaders and skilled managers in environmental organizations.

We’re aware that systemic change takes time, so we engage in a wide range of activities to train business and environment leaders of tomorrow and address pressing global resource issues through three main avenues:

  1. Education: Applied learning programs that stretch student experience at the intersection of environmental science, management, and business innovation
  2. Research and Insights: Opportunities for collaborations between industry leaders, students, and faculty to conduct deep analysis and develop applied, immediate, and impactful solutions to sustainability challenges
  3. Outreach: Connecting leading companies, NGOs, and policymakers with extensive networks of sustainability professionals, students, and faculty
