IÉSEG organizes the third edition of its CSR Day
On March 3, IÉSEG held the third edition of its CSR Day: a day of activities for staff and students on both campuses dedicated to corporate social responsibility and sustainable development.
Organized in collaboration with the School’s Center of excellence for Organizational Responsibility (ICOR), the event began in the afternoon with a number of different activities: do-it-yourself workshops for natural household products, insect tasting, stands held by different IÉSEG student associations, activities related to disability awareness and more.
In addition, a conference on the theme “Towards a circular economy: challenges, opportunities and transition” was held on both campuses. The event in Lille was organized in the context of the award ceremony for the fifth edition of the ICOR prize for the best Master’s thesis on ethics, social responsibility and sustainability, and included the contribution of:
• Justine Laurent, Managing Director at Circulab
• Christian Traisnel, Directeur Général at Team2
• Marc Violo, Directeur Marketing at Loop Europe
Furthermore, students and staff were invited to participate in the Big Idea Challenge. This challenge aims to provide members of the school with the possibility to propose new CSR ideas or activities for IÉSEG. The winning team will have the opportunity to implement its project in collaboration with IÉSEG CSR Manager, Maria Castillo.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is at the heart of IÉSEG and of its 2025 Vision: to be “a unique international hub empowering changemakers for a better society”. It is integrated transversally across all of the activities at the School, which has been committed for a number of years to important international and national CSR-related schemes, such as the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). The School has recently been selected as a PRME Champion a group of schools that contribute to thought and action leadership on responsible management education in the context of the United Nations sustainable development agenda. The School also features amongst the 30 leading international schools listed in a new student-based rating*, the PIR, measuring the positive impact of business schools internationally.
