Organization(s) making commitment

L?école de design Nantes Atlantique

Achievement of Commitment

We have set up a Masters in Responsible Innovation dealing with issues related to sustainability three years ago. Being members of the international association Cumulus, we have signed in 2008 the Cumulus Kyoto Declaration, which defines the responsibility of design and designers regarding sustainable development.

How this will be achieved

We have signed a memorandum of agreement about our responsibility regarding ecological responsibility with our region Pays de la Loire. We publish a report every year about our actions and what we have done for sustainability. As designers, we are definitely involved in ?Reshaping? the world in the best way possible. Sustainability is the centre of our work and development. We are active members of ?Design for all? and of the non-profit ?Desis? organisation, which aims at using social innovation as a driver of sustainable change
