“Edward, Darryl, and Donna are all leaders and innovators in each of their respective fields,” remarked Horace Anderson, Dean of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University. “Each of them has a unique perspective on the field of sustainability. We are grateful for the dedication of both their time and knowledge to our Sustainable Business Law Hub.”
Launched in fall 2021, Haub Law’s Sustainable Business Law Hub serves as an incubator space, student-training program, research endeavor, and think tank devoted to addressing global sustainability challenges through policy and research projects, relationships with the business community, and capacity building in private environmental governance. The Hub incorporates the three pillars of sustainability—economic, social and environmental welfare—into global business practices by engaging in research and policy development, improving public law and governance, and working with existing industry, the small business community, startups, and the community at-large to develop and employ innovative private environmental models and sustainability practices, such as those that promote a circular economy. Working hand-in-hand with faculty experts, students participating in the Hub receive practical training and experience in using the law to foster sustainable business practices.
