An Environmentally Responsible University

The University of Strasbourg is committed to environmental responsibility. As such:

  • It assumes social responsibility and participates in national and European objectives to reduce energy consumption, greenhouse gases, waste and pesticides;
  • It promotes new, more environmentally friendly uses;
  • It is part of a network of actors involved in energy and climate policies at a local level;
  • It improves the well-being (comfort, working and learning conditions) of everyone.

The creation of the Misssion Développement Durable (DDRS) is a response to these concerns. Its main tasks are to: 

  • Manage the University's "Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility" label;
  • Support projects aimed at making the campus more environmentally responsible;
  • Develop training for staff and students;
  • Support the introduction of more sustainable practices in research units;
  • Promote and communicate the DDRS actions undertaken by students, lecturers, researchers and administrative staff.

In March 2021, a Vice President for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility was appointed to provide political support for the DDRS approach within the decision-making authorities.
