On the occasion of the 2013 Dies Academicus, the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) has awarded the Doctor Honoris Causa degree to Dominique Biedermann, Ethos' CEO.

This distinction is an acknowledgement of Dominique Biedermann's contribution in the fields of socially responsible investment and active share ownership during the past sixteen years. It is also an honor for the Ethos Foundation that is thereby recognized not only by the business world, but also by academia.
