Achievement of Commitment

UCL is committed to continuing its management and its development by assuming its societal responsibility in terms of sustainable development: energy management, soft mobility for students and staff, sustainable installations, materials and consumables. To this end, it is engaged in a process of strategic reflection on the subject, so as to devise a vision, an inventory of themes, actions and players, with transparent monitoring based on objective results indicators.

How this will be achieved

The Louvain School of Management (LSM) - the UCL’s Faculty of Management – leads a pilot study about the integration of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the students’ curriculum. The LSM promotes a clear ambition - summarized in its slogan: “Excellence & Ethics in Business” - that is “to train today’s and tomorrow’s managers to responsible decision-making within a complex socio-economic environment and to put human and societal values at the heart of decisions”. The LSM works to support the objectives of the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (see the LSM report available on The LSM promotes the training of entrepreneurs – willing to launch innovative projects, to solve complex problems by adopting a systemic perspective and to change business norms; ethical leaders – willing to motivate staff and to undertake cultural change for a more ethical and sustainable development; and statesmen – willing to adopt a role of concerned citizen and to participate to the design of a new political governance.
