Sustainable development and social responsibility

IMT Mines Albi committed to the SDGs

In September 2015, the Member States of the United Nations adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated targets as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

These 17 goals serve as a directive to achieve a better, more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges our society faces (poverty, inequalities, climate, environmental degradation, peace and prosperity, etc.). They take the three facets of sustainable development into account:

  • the environment,
  • society and
  • economy.

Higher education establishments are committed to achieving these objectives by 2030. IMT Mines Albi is fully committed to this approach.
