Achievement of Commitment

Since 2008, the University of Nantes has been implicated in sustainable development because it is clear for actors of the University that higher education has a crucial role to play in the evolution of the society.

This program is divided into five items:
- Environmental management
- Transports and soft mobility
- Social policy
- Awareness, Teaching and Research
- Strategy and governance
