The EDuC Label for Sustainability Content in Higher Education Programs

Pioneering Sustainability with La Belle EDuC

Higher education institutions have the potential to accelerate sustainable practices globally and across sectors and industries by providing tomorrow’s leaders and decision-makers with sustainability content throughout their programs.
We offer a sustainability label with dedicated training to help guide higher education institutions on the path to state-of-the-art sustainability integration in their curricula.
A higher education program with an academic sustainability strategy backed by the EDuC Label is
  • better able to meet industry hiring needs

  • more responsive to student demands

"There is widespread agreement that business schools should do more to provide research and teaching for the next generation of students with greater focus on sustainability, ethics and social purpose."
