Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility

Page builder

As part of a public university, Toulouse School of Management embodies the objectives of public service by working to reduce social and economic inequalities, by contributing to the fight against discrimination, by collaborating with local, national and international partners to promote economic growth, while taking into account social and environmental concerns and the economics of the common good.

TSM's social responsibility is expressed in terms of the environmental and social impact of its activities and operations on society and the environment. TSM has adopted a holistic approach ranging from awareness raising to training of students and staff on environmental issues. 
TSM strives to instill a sense of integrity and responsibility that is reflected in civic values. Social challenges are integrated into the School's values and curricula through courses, projects and skills, which are also aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We strive to promote diversity, inclusion and respect in our community.

The School actively contributes to a policy of reducing greenhouse gas emissions through:

  • Compliance with the sobriety plan;
  • The energy audit and renovation plan;
  • Encouraging the use of sustainable modes of transport.

Sustainable use and reduction of resource consumption (operational practices) is encouraged through:

  • Sorting and recycling of paper and cardboard;
  • The printing policy;
  • Awareness of eco-gestures.

Finally, TSM is developing a policy of prevention, awareness and reduction of environmental damage through events throughout the year:

  • Zero waste awareness;
  • Clean walk (walk for cleanliness);
  • Gratiferia (free sale).

TSM's social policy

Actions in favour of diversity, gender equality and the inclusion of people with disabilities among staff and students are implemented at Toulouse School of Management.

University Equality Mission

The Equality Mission works to prevent and raise awareness of sexist, homophobic and transphobic violence.

To this end, a system for reporting acts of violence, discrimination, moral or sexual harassment and sexist behaviour has been created at the university. The purpose of the system is to collect, in a confidential and neutral framework, reports of:

  • Acts of violence;
  • Discrimination;
  • Moral or sexual harassment;
  • Sexist behaviour.

The Equality Mission listens to and guides complainants and witnesses in their efforts and, if necessary, alerts the competent authorities.

Article 1 : taking power over the future


TSM is associated with ARTICLE 1 to support equal opportunities which works for a society where orientation, success in studies and professional integration do not depend on social, economic and cultural origins; for a society where success depends on social ties and civic commitment.

The UT Capitole Handicap Office welcomes, advises and supports students with disabilities throughout their university studies. Whether it is a temporary or permanent disability or a serious health problem, all students can benefit from special measures.
