Established in November 2003, the Chair on Eco-Board’s primary mandate is to support the development of eco-consultant business, its relevance in the implementation of sustainable development projects and the need to establish the theoretical foundations related to the practice of the profession to ensure the implementation and long-term success in our society. The specific areas of expertise developed in the pulpit are in the field of management of greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation of climate change, waste management and the development of sustainable development analysis tools.

The research program focuses on practical advice and eco-sustainability. The various activities of the Chair favor maintaining and expanding the network of eco-consultants in the world.

Bridges can be thrown to other university graduate programs where the skills of eco-advisor may be supplemented by training in research and production of new knowledge. The Chair will also maintain links with UNESCO and the major international programs that feed the debate on sustainable development
