Organization(s) making commitment

Institut des sciences et industries du vivant et de l?environnement

Achievement of Commitment

- A renewed carbon assessment for our sites
- The achievement of a methane digester device at the experimental farm
- Energy consumptions diagnosis on the campus sites
- Improving of the waste management schemes and actions
- Possibly, a more organic food profile of the meals handed out by our catering partner
- Improvement of sites accessibility for disabled students and workers
- The ?greening? of vehicles used, with lower carbon emissions

How this will be achieved

As an institute focusing on education and research in life sciences, agronomy, food technology and environment, AgroParisTech addresses in a direct way sustainable development concerns. Teaching, research works and campus management already integrate these issues.
Our commitment will be fostered throughout the implementation of a Green Plan for sustainable development encompassing the next three years and aiming, among other things, at enhancing sustainability as well as rising sensitivity towards those issues within the working community and beyond. Annual reporting will assess the related developments. The resources mobilized so as to fulfill those commitments will rely on the student associations, the working community, managers, as well as the sustainable development mission.
