Achievement of Commitment

In the field of Executive education, ESCP Europe is offering a 5-day program on the Management of Industrial Ecology with pioneer company Interface Inc., as of 2012.

About 12 faculty members are working on sustainability issues (in various fields such as finance, supply chain and procurement, strategy, ethics, marketing, management control, economics) are now collaborating on joint teaching and research projects.

Regarding campus, green initiatives are developing and annual reporting is taking place.

How this will be achieved

ESCP Europe is committed to further developing both teaching and research devoted to sustainability as well as green campus actions and initiatives. In this respect, a new major concentration on « Management, social innovation and Sustainability » was launched in 2011 on the Paris campus (Professors Aurélien Acquier & Olivier Delbard), together with a new specialization on « Sustainability management » taught in Berlin (Professor Sylvie Geisendorf). Besides, a major on « Social entrepreneurship » has started in Madrid in 2011.
Our objective is to have a 20% increase in students in these majors.
