Being exemplary on our campuses
A school with more than 12,500 students and more than 600 staff naturally has a significant environmental impact. This impact is even more important when it is based on several campuses and almost all of its students undertake a period of study abroad.
What’s more, the increasing number of students, the growth in inter-campus travel and increasing digitisation are all new challenges which the school needs to face, adapting its campuses to these changes in line with its commitments.
For several years, the school has been engaged in a continuous improvement process enabling students, administrative staff and teachers to get involved and to be exemplary.
The themes involved should enable us to quickly produce our first Climate Plan:
- Sustainable mobility (carsharing, electrically assisted bicycles, carpooling),
- The energy performance of buildings (energy efficiency, solar panels, renovation of our buildings and facilities),
- Responsible purchasing
- Reducing and recycling waste.
- Protecting biodiversity.
To go further still, in October 2018 the school signed a partnership with CDC Bioiversité (a subsidiary of the Caisse des Dépots et Consignations) as part of its Nature 2050programme. In order to be able to take concrete action aimed at protecting ecosystems, KEDGE is contributing to the implementation of the project CasCioMar on its Marseille site.
We work with managers of commercial companies to further our knowledge of the challenges related to social and environmental responsibility and to jointly explore effective solutions to help us tackle these challenges.
