Description/achievement of initiative

Groupe ESC Toulouse (Toulouse Business School) attaches the highest importance to the individual and collective involvement of its students. That's why each first year student of the Master in Management Program must carry out a civil duty or 50 hours in solidarity, made available to associations.

A student association has been created in 2006: the B3D Bureau du Développement Durable (= Sustainable development office). With the support of Groupe ESC Toulouse institution, the B3D organises each year Les Assises nationales étudiantes du développement durable, a national student sustainable development event.

Moreover, all the students are more and more sensitized to BiS and CR matters through academic discipline teaching and conferences.

Several professors of the Groupe ESC Toulouse have published their work on these matters and especially on Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development.

Our institution is trying to improve integration of CSR in its own strategy and in education, teaching and research.
