Sustainability is one of the main axes of EADA Business School, forming part of its values, research, training and dissemination activities that are created and promoted by the institution. Because the economic, social and environmental challenges of today show the need to redefine the current social and productive model, in addition to financial profit.
We firmly believe in RESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP in and from business organisations. Our duty as an educational institution is to help business leaders, through their actions and decisions, to promote the protection of the environment, improve the well-being of all their stakeholders and encourage the same actions from their teams and organisation. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
We generate knowledge and transfer sustainability research to training programmes and activities that create a real impact in the EADA Community and wider society. In 2017, we decided to pioneer research, partnerships, transfer and programmes with a 100% focus on sustainability in the business world.
We provide support to business leaders as they implement sustainability in their organisations.
Work in progress
Our work continues as we adapt our programmes and ad-hoc training programmes to sustainability and sustainable leadership, promoting further research and study in this area and entering into new agreements and partnerships. We continue to MOVE FORWARD.
We are all called to action to promote change for the common good and EADA starts with its mission: to transfer knowledge to society, through research, training and support for managers, teams, organisations and the business ecosystem. WE CAN DO IT TOGETHER.
We strongly believe that our mission should generate impact based on these 8 Sustainable Development Goals:
- SDG nº 4 Quality education
- SDG nº 5 Gender equality
- SDG nº 8 Decent work and economic growth
- SDG nº 9 Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- SDG nº 10 Reduced inequalities
- SDG nº 11 Sustainable cities and communities
- SDG nº 12 Responsible consumption and production
- SDG nº 17 Partnerships to achieve the goals
The Sustainability Hub is the centre that brings together all the activities that EADA carries out, or promotes in collaboration with its partners, in sustainability, training, research, dissemination and impact for its different stakeholders and encourages participation in future initiatives.
Its purpose is to:
- Carry out research
- Teach and disseminate
- Generate impact
in sustainability in the business environment.
The Sustainability Hub works towards achieving real impact, activating change in our communities through EADA’s research and training resources, the academic team, our students, partners and its resulting multiplier effect.
EADA works on joint projects with leading changemakers such as Ashoka o B Lab to achieve a greater impact.
The Sustainability Hub: main areas
We contribute research to the field of sustainability science
- Research projects carried out by our expert faculty team analyse and generate knowledge in the field of sustainability

We bring sustainability closer to the EADA Community as well as public and private organisations
We set up collaboration agreements and partnerships with leading organisations and institutions that support sustainability initiatives and education and work together to promote initiatives. These include: B Lab Spain, Ashoka and CREAF.
We work towards professional equity so that all professionals have access to quality training programmes through scholarships and fundraising.
We have set up various internal initiatives to promote sustainability among our staff and faculty members.
We explain the principles of sustainability in our programmes.
We transfer our research in sustainability to our training programmes:
- International Master in Sustainable Business and Innovation:
a pioneering programme in Spain and Europe in sustainable business that was created in 2017.
- Online Master in Innovation and Sustainable Business (in spanish)
- Online Master in Sustainability and Business Innovation

- ESG Investment Programme (in spanish)
We design custom training programmes so that companies that are aware, ready or have decided to move towards change, can transform their work model to one that is more sustainable in the areas of environment, society and finance to create a more positive impact. We also organise complementary activities such as conferences, meetings and material on relevant topics including circular economy, diversity and inclusion, sustainable marketing and leadership for sustainable transformation.
We support professionals on their journey towards change
In our training programmes and methodology, we advocate sustainable leadership, which is based not only on improving the professional competencies and skills of our participants but also by promoting and incorporating values and practices related to human sustainability, society, the environment, the economy, ethics and equal opportunities into their professional development.
The creation of our specific training and research projects is made possible by our academic team. EADA has a team of faculty and research experts in sustainability who carry out research projects and develop materials to be transferred onto the EADA programmes. We also regularly invite guest professors and professionals from the field to impart sustainable leadership in all the EADA programmes.
