1st place in the Rotman Sustainability Innovations Case Competition
January 25, 2017
This year the teams had to come up with a business strategy to reduce CO2 emissions in existing skyscrapers.
The HEC Montréal team of Loic Angot, Simon Boisjoly, Carolina Marcucci, Laura Rubio and Hadrien Seymour-Provencher suggested a business solution bringing together owners of large towers and energy efficiency consultants.
“The case was very well put together, with very high-level judges,” says Loic Angot. “Presenting our solution in front of people from the industry who manage huge property portfolios added to the pressure. But we made a concrete, feasible proposal and were able to answer the judges’ specific questions, which they really appreciated.”
Three of the 12 teams in the competition made it to the final round: one from the UofT Rotman School of Business and one from the University of Waterloo, in addition to the HEC Montréal delegation.
