Sorbonne University is a multidisciplinary, research-intensive, world-class university. Located in the heart of Paris, with a regional presence, it is committed to the success of its students and to meeting the scientific challenges of the 21st century. Thanks to its 55,300 students, 6,400 academic researchers and partner researchers, and 3,600 administrative and technical staff who make it a daily reality, Sorbonne University promotes diversity, creativity, innovation and openness to the world.

Sustainable development is a challenge that affects the whole Sorbonne University community and these days must be integrated into all of its actions. Sorbonne University’s Sustainable Development Charter, adopted by the Board of Directors in October 2019, endorses this commitment. It was developed with a range of stakeholders from the University community, including students, associations, and academic researchers who are experts on the subject.

Sorbonne University is committed to integrating sustainable development into its curricula, promoting research and innovation on sustainable development and increasing citizens’ awareness of environmental issues. As for its own ecological responsibility, Sorbonne University aims to reduce its waste and greenhouse gas emissions, and is committed to promoting sustainable practices in all areas of the University’s work. For example, Sorbonne University includes sustainable development in the weighting of the analysis of bids, and integrates energy performance criteria in the specifications of all its actions on buildings. In addition, a “minor” program on the environment is now available to all Sorbonne University students.
