> Charter of Societal Responsibility - IAE Lyon

Societal responsibility has existed since the IAE were established in 1955 by Gaston Berger, philosopher and humanist, for whom prospective requires to « look ahead, think large, deep, think of man, take risks. ».

Societal responsibility is built into IAE Lyon DNA.


At IAE Lyon, we believe that societal responsibility reflects the founding values of our School of Management and guides its developments in terms of programmes, research and support activities in favour of the diversity of its stakeholders. The impacts of these activities on the worlds and the city are meaningful. This responsibility applies in the day-to-day reality of our professional lives. It contributes to enhancing IAE Lyon image and to optimizing our collective achievements. Societal responsibility is integrated into strategic areas because it cannot be limited to the provision of Ethics and CSR courses and to energy and paper-saving measures. IAE Lyon educates tomorrow’s managers who will have to contribute to sustainable prosperity and to the international openness of businesses and their local territories.


Societal Responsibility: IAE Lyon Charter of commitments


Following several working seminars on the theme of CSR at IAE Lyon, participants have wished to formalize their responsibilities and commitments into a document in order to share them. This document also aims to highlight the fact that, each individual, each team and all staff within IAE Lyon are committed to a certain kind of exemplarity in terms of societal responsibility, beyond statutory and professional obligations. This is a necessary condition for fully playing our part as a public institution, socially responsible for the impacts of its activities.
