Who we are

Green Light for Business is a nonprofit association established in 2008 by a group of international students at Bocconi University in Milan with the objective of “inspiring engagement in green business”. This association prepares tomorrow’s leaders and decision makers in facing environmental challenges.

Green Light for Business is divided into four functional areas:


The events team organizes conferences and workshops on green-related issues to allow members and everyone interested to keep an eye on current trends and forecast future states of the world. Talking with professionals from the field is an extremely valuable opportunity in order to approach green jobs and develop soft skills in the area of relationship management and networking.
