Online, ESG Masterclasses launching now through Presidio & Earth Academy Partnership

SAN FRANCISCO – Starting now, people seeking practical knowledge and in-depth skills around a targeted set of ESG-related topics (environmental, social, and corporate governance) can enroll in a new slate of online, intensive courses, made possible through a partnership between

Presidio has launched our first courses with Earth Academy: a set of three-day intensive programs engaging sustainability subjects ranging from Climate Strategy to Materiality. The first of these classes, Greenhouse Gas Management & Climate Action Planning is jointly facilitated by Presidio faculty members Dr. Carlos Davidson and Lyrica McTiernan. Course participants will learn how to calculate greenhouse gas inventories, model a climate action plan, and discover offsets and nature-based solutions. This March we are also offering an Advanced Course on Materiality, also taught by Lyrica McTiernan, which will engage the various types of materiality and instruct participants on how to integrate materiality as a key component of ESG strategy and disclosure.

We are happy to offer a 10% discount for any Presidio student or alum interested in an upcoming course as part of our partnership. We hope you will join us for one of our two, synchronous, 10-hour masterclasses starting in the coming weeks. Please email us at  for additional details or register now. Stay tuned for further opportunities that arise from this partnership, which promises to broaden the Presidio reach and bring sustainability education to new corners of the world.

Based in San Francisco, Presidio is the first and only independent graduate school dedicated entirely to educating people who are working for a more just and sustainable world.

Based in Amsterdam, in The Netherlands, Earth Academy Global’s mission is to “democratize sustainability knowledge.”
