Quentin graduated with the highest honors from French elite schools HEC Paris and Ecole Polytechnique. During his Master’s of Research in Management, he specialized in Innovation Management. His research work has led him to assess the sustainable transition strategies of large corporate groups directly on the field: while working with a leading industrial multinational, he focused particularly on questions of environmental labeling by participating in the co-construction of a multi-criteria impact measurement framework. Firmly convinced that the environmental transition cannot take place without education, Quentin joined the Working Group of La Belle EDuC to bring his perspective as a recent graduate familiar with the inner workings of sustainability labels.
