Fighting Climate Change is a Marathon. We help you take your first steps in your race to net zero.


As a first step in forming a global alliance with other leading schools, we motivate the INSEAD community to fight climate change and take their first steps in their individual race to net zero emissions. We do so by educating about climate change and what businesses and individuals can do about it. To make it tangible, and offer an immediate opportunity, we host the Climate Run – a charity run to raise funds towards a climate protection project.


Solar Power Plant Replaces Fossil Energy in the Dominican Republic

The project involves the installation of the largest solar power plant in the Caribbean, producing renewable and locally produced electricity for around 50,000 households in the Dominican Republic annually. An education centre will also be installed in the plant, providing climate education and creating employment for the local community. The project contributes to 7 SDGs, supporting  among others affordable and clean energy, climate action, and quality education. 

Our goals

Reach 41 kilometres:

41 gigatons – that’s the amount of annual greenhouse gas emissions we need to reduce to get to net zero (IEA,21).

41 kilometres – that’s the distance every single one of us, as part of the INSEAD community, will aim to walk, run, or cycle over 2 weeks in the 2022-23 Climate Run!

Improve Environmental Literacy:

The INSEAD community is a force for sustainable action and with the right tools at our disposal, we can be change-makers. Hence, education acts as a main pillar of climate action. We will be hosting a series of events and workshops for this purpose.

Raise Funds Towards Nature-Based Climate Solutions:

We partner with myclimate to donate all the proceeds from the Climate Run to nature-based climate solutions. myclimate is an international non-profit based in Switzerland.

Our role as INSEAD students
“INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas to develop responsible leaders who transform business and society.”
We believe part of INSEAD’s mission is to step up to our responsibility towards the planet. Today, each INSEAD student causes 11.5t of CO2 emissions throughout their studies. And we want to do something about that. That’s why we are organizing the INSEAD Climate Run to educate the INSEAD community about climate change and raise funds towards nature-based climate solutions via the charity run – One step at the time.
