The Office of Sustainable Development (OSD) ensures that HEC Montréal’s sustainable development efforts are coherent and efficient. OSD is responsible for managing and implementing, with other stakeholders, the School’s sustainable development action plan.
The OSD also ensures that HEC Montréal:
Following its 2019–2023 planning exercise, HEC Montréal chose to place sustainable development, corporate social responsibility and ethics (SD, CSR and ethics) at the core of its mission. The School also chose to promote and apply these concepts as a throughline in all its activities. The Office of Sustainable Development plays a key role in the implementation of the School’s commitments in this area.
The Office of Sustainable Development plays a unifying role within a robust SD, CSR and ethics ecosystem. In addition to HEC Montréal community members, this ecosystem brings together university groups, institutional and social partners, international organizations and academics who conceptualize and guide sustainable development efforts. The collaboration of this diverse group of stakeholders makes it possible for the School to achieve its mission.
HEC Montréal has set ambitious targets and hopes to become a leader in SD, CSR and ethics. The School has developed a realistic action plan that covers a wide range of activities and resulted from community consultations to define key questions and zero in on the School’s needs. The action plan includes strategic indicators for tracking our progress.
