Sustainability at EDHEC

In order to fulfil its statement “making an impact for future generations”, EDHEC’s sustainability strategy leans on three pillars: campuses, courses, research.

Sustainability at EDHEC


The world is changing. Global warming and societal transformation are engendering new challenges and new expectations. Business has a central role to address these environmental, social and economic global priorities.

At EDHEC, we educate our students to make a positive impact for future generations. This means using finance to tackle climate change, promoting inclusion and diversity as core values and creating new responsible ways to do business.


The report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is clear, limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society.  By limiting global warming, people and ecosystems will have more room to adapt and remain below critical risk threshold.


Accelerating the sustainability transition requires commitment and collaboration from all EDHEC stakeholders (students, academic, administration, staff, alumni and partners) to share best practices as well as a holistic approach to integrate all aspects of social and environmental sustainability in EDHEC programmes and operations.


EDHEC has been part of PRME – Principles for Responsible Management Education since 2015 and aligns its sustainability initiatives with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.


This year EDHEC signed the Accord de Grenoble initiated by COP2 students in 2021.
