China Europe International Business School's Green Campus Initiative

The China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) has one of the greenest campuses in China. CEIBS is the leading China-based international business school, it offers many business degrees including a widely respected MBA.

Located in suburban Shanghai, there are visible signs of sustainable initiatives all over CEIBS campus, including recycling stations and ubiquitous reminders to shut off lights.

In 2006 an MBA student founded CEIBS' Green Campus Initiative. The initiative was born with the modest goal of minimizing paper waste. This effort is blossoming into a movement that has influenced CEIBS' curriculum development and new building projects.

Due to student interest, the school is adopting an increasingly environmentally oriented curriculum. Thanks to Green Campus's activism, the school's new campus, is also incorporating green-building concepts. The new structures will incorporate the 80/20 rule, meaning 80 percent energy reduction for 20 percent of the investment. This will make the new structure one of the most energy efficient complexes in Shanghai.
