Yale Center for Business and the Environment

The Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY) is a hub for creating innovative and sustainable solutions to the challenges facing the human and natural systems upon which we all rely. Our mission is to inspire, support, and accelerate the transition to a just and thriving world. We do that by connecting people, ideas, and resources to foster business and cross-sector solutions to global challenges.

By educating, convening, and supporting our network, we promote collaborative, equitable, and impactful change. 

Educate We are life-long learners. Through innovative educational programs, like the YSE/SOM joint degree program, Financing and Deploying Clean Energy Certificate Program, internships, independent studies, research, and more, we offer something for individuals at every stage of their educational journey and careers. 

Convene We are a community of collaborators. Through events, mentorship programs, networking opportunities, and partnerships with values-aligned organizations, we connect individuals and ideas to support action. CBEY takes pride in serving as a “physical LinkedIn,” curating authentic and meaningful connections among our community and beyond.

Support We meet people where they are in order to help get them where they’re going. At CBEY we:

  • connect individuals with the resources and support they need to succeed,
  • elevate innovative ideas, individuals, and organizations,
  • listen and respond to the needs of our community, and
  • work collaboratively to build novel solutions or strengthen tried-and-true methods to advance positive progress.
