At the intersection of sustainability and finance are the hot topics of stakeholder and impact investing, climate finance, and corporate responsibility. On November 11, 2021, Cornell SC Johnson College of Business dean Andrew Karolyi moderated this special event inaugurating the college’s new classrooms and collaboration spaces on the 7th Floor of 570 Lexington Avenue, the historic General Electric building.

Focused on climate finance and data analytics --expanding disciplines in the college’s approach to business education -- the hybrid event took place during the COP26 global climate conference, and faculty among the Cornell delegation joined in, sharing real-time insights from Glasgow, Scotland. Karolyi, school deans Walsh, Zhao, and Nelson, faculty, alumni experts, and industry leaders shared their informed perspectives on the many ways in which business education and industry can and must work together, moving forward. “This midtown Manhattan landmark is just the right location for our expanding home in New York City,” said Karolyi. “And this timing is germane to the goal of showing our expertise in the climate finance space. It’s particularly meaningful and valuable to physically populate our 570 Lex classrooms with our faculty experts, as we start to build new teaching, learning, and outreach relationships into the college’s life in New York City.”

Speakers appearing in this program include: Elena Belavina, Linda Canina, Vishal Gaur, Andrew Karolyi, Cathy Kling, Kara Mangone, Hilary Maxson, Mark Nelson, David Ng, Ariel Ortiz-Bobea, Lauren Taylor Wolfe, John Tobin-de la Puente, Kate Walsh, Jinhua Zhao.
