Implementation methodologies

Our projects in terms of sustainable development at Blaise Pascal University are essentially committed to:
- bring forward, ameliorate existing teaching programs and implement new teaching programs in which sustainable development is a focus.
-the implementation of a Green Plan in the next 4 years which will first focus on:
-a carbon assessment of our sites and buildings through a detailed diagnosis of energy consumptions with the goal to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 2020,
-a survey of water consumption and management on our different campus sites,
-the improvement of our waste management plan,
-the improvement of sites accessibility for disabled persons,
-the improvement of workers and students commuting schemes,
-a reduction of our university vehicle park and when possible a switch towards ""green"" vehicles.
-the management of green areas when possible in which plant biodiversity is explained and preserved,
-to develop within the University a specific communication plan and program about sustainable development actions in order to involve the different users (students and University staff).
