INSEEC Grande École, committed since 2017 to the Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility labeling scheme, has just been awarded the renewal of its SD&RS label for its maximum duration of 4 years.
The DD&RS labeling system is in line with Article 55 of the Grenelle 1 environmental law and rewards the commitment of French higher education and research institutions to sustainable development and their social responsibility.
The reference framework covers 5 areas: Governance Strategy, Training and Education, Research Activities, Environmental Management, Social Policy and Territorial Anchoring.
The labeling committee is composed of a group of peers and a group of students acting as auditors of the DD& RS label, the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity, the Ministry of Higher Education, the Ministry of Research and Innovation, the Conference of Grandes Ecoles (CGE), the French Ministry of Education, the French Ministry of Research and Innovation and the French Ministry of Education.RS label, the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity, the Ministry of Higher Education, the Ministry of Research and Innovation, the Conférence des Grandes Écoles (CGE), the Conférence des Présidents d’Universités (CPU), the Réseau Français des Étudiants pour le Développement Durable (REFEDD) and the CIRSES association (Collectif pour l’Intégration de la Responsabilité Sociétale et du Développement durable dans l’Enseignement Supérieur).
For Thomas ALLANIC, Dean of the School: “INSEEC Grande Ecole’s ambitious SD&RS strategy represents an additional opportunity to increase its competencies, to concretize its actions in terms of CSR in a process of continuous improvement, and to show that it is aware of the economic but also environmental and societal challenges of the planet. Students who are increasingly looking for training that prepares them for careers that give meaning to their lives are indeed looking to schools and universities that act in favor of the 17 SDGs(United Nations Sustainable Development Goals).”
27 higher education institutions are currently certified.
