Christian Varinard
Dean, iaelyon School of Management

"iaelyon School of Management has been a member of PRME and the UN Global Compact for a little over 9 years. Since that time, two successive management teams have sought to increase the school’s commitment to the United Nations principles and 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), placing greater emphasis on the dimension of social responsibility and impacts more generally.

Social responsibility is thus a strong focus of engagement for the school, which is dedicated to training professionals with strong technical skills in business administration, but also with the critical competencies they’ll need for responsible, sustainable management. This means seamlessly integrating the various dimensions of the social responsibility of organizations into our academic programs, research activities and the relationships we have with all the components of our ecosystem.

In an ever-changing society in which corporate social responsibility has becomean essential factor, we have decided to engage in a process of continuous improvement, as reflected in particular by the formation in 2019 of a steering committee that provides orientation and monitors the measures taken by faculty, staff and students, whose commitment to matters of sustainable development is often remarkable.

Our community has a responsibility to do its best to ensure that its activities bring us closer to making the world a sustainable place. This report highlights the areas in which iaelyon has made progress since the last report, by rolling out new measures and initiatives. It also sets concrete goals to keep the school moving forward, by improving its internal practices regarding sustainable, responsible development.”
