ÉTS is a Leader in Sustainable Development!

As a teaching and research establishment, ÉTS has long recognized its responsibilities to the next generation, the environment and society. That’s why, in 2008, the School adopted its sustainable development policy (in French). Since then, its concern for the impacts of its activities on the environment, the economy and society has not wavered.  And its actions have borne fruit!

A seal to recognize sustainable development initiatives

  • With a view to spotlighting sustainable development initiatives implemented by the entire ÉTS community, the General Secretariat’s Sustainable Development Team has created a seal that can be used to identify actions, events, conferences, and other initiatives that promote environmental responsibility. The seal is available to all members of the ÉTS community. You are encouraged to integrate it into your visuals and share the pride of being part of the SD solution!
  • Please request approval from the Sustainable Development Team before using the seal:
    1. Send an e-mail to devdurable@etsmtl.ca.
    2. Describe the nature of your initiative (type of event or action, target public(s), date and time).
    3. The Sustainable Development Team will respond within five business days.
