Our story

A journey towards enlightening corporate
sustainability

ED4S was born from a vision. Our founder, Maria Maisuradze, sparked the idea after contributing to the PRI Quebec Conference in 2019, where she noticed a critical gap in sustainability education. Seeing the need for a systemic approach to sustainability training, Maria was motivated to take action. Her goal: to democratize access to sustainability knowledge, making it accessible for all. The journey began with our flagship course, ESG & Sustainable Investing 101, which quickly garnered outstanding feedback and revealed a strong demand from financial institutions. This initial success transformed ED4S from a mere passion project into a thriving mission-focused organization, dedicated to closing the sustainability knowledge gap within the workforce of companies worldwide.
