OUR STORY

Ed4S began as a passion project, when the founder, Maria Maisuradze having assisted the PRI Quebec conference saw a pressing need to create a systemic approach to education on ESG and Sustainable Finance topics and drive conversation beyond ESG 101.
The potential to create solutions that allow anyone to get educated on sustainability topics was the main driver. Excellent student feedback for our first course ESG & Sustainable Investing 101 and appetite for similar courses has transformed a project and resulted in creation of Ed4S.
 

Our Why

At Ed4S Academy, we believe that time and knowledge are two of the most valuable assets that each one of us owns. Scarcity of time and abundance of knowledge available through the internet creates a need for high quality and efficient way to learn.

The ever-evolving nature of the sustainability subjects make it difficult for educational institutions to adopt and adapt these concepts. Meanwhile, there is an increasing demand for professionals who are educated on environmental, social and governance issues in the business world.

Our Team

We are a team of passionate individuals with expertise in multiple backgrounds including education, finance, sustainability and videography.

We leverage on the best research out there and leading educational programs to create short courses that stimulate interest and awareness towards sustainability topics.

We work with industry experts to review content that we create in order to offer quality education that is also affordable to everyone.
