HONG KONG, May 13, 2014 — By tying environmental issues with the operation of enterprises, the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at the University of Oxford serves as a pioneer to educate future leaders on the economics, management, and the investment of the environment.

Professor Gordon L. Clark, the Director of the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, gave an evening presentation at Asia Society Hong Kong Center in which he touched on the rationale behind the founding of the Smith School and the three programs to be offered there. Drawing upon his own experience living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the speaker emphasized the effects industrialization has on the environment, and how this process then affects our own living. Among many environmental issues, he focused on climate change, an ongoing problem that many scholars have sought to explain.
