Developing exemplary organizational practices

HEC Montréal seeks to act as a catalyst by developing exemplary practices that bring sustainable and responsible management principles into the daily lives of our community members.

Environmentally responsible operations

HEC Montréal tries to consume only the resources that it needs, until the end of their life cycle. The school also ensures that the materials and tools it uses are reused or recycled.
