The Ministry of Culture and Communication is committed to sustainable development.
As part of France’s National Strategy for Ecological Transition to Sustainable Development, adopted in 2015 for a period of five years, the Ministry of Culture and Communication presented on March 10, 2017 its strategy of Social Responsibility of Organizations (RSO).
The “Culture and Sustainable Development” meeting held at the Palais de la Porte Dorée was an opportunity for the participants, coming from all walks of life of the Ministry but also from local and associative partners, to share the objectives of this approach and to discuss actions in fields as diverse as architecture, plastic creation or audiovisual production.
To accompany this launch, the sustainable development mission of the Ministry of Culture and Communication coordinated the writing of a booklet presenting the three social, social and environmental components of the Social Responsibility of Organizations strategy.
- The societal component resonates strongly with the missions of the Ministry and its operators in terms of arts and cultural education, creation and dissemination, protection and enhancement of heritage, architecture and education;
- The social component refers to the department’s application for the “Diversity” and “Equality” labels;
- Finally, the scope of the environmental component covers commitments related to the reduction of greenhouse gases, energy efficiency in buildings, reuse, water and waste management, biodiversity and environmentally responsible mobility.
This meeting testifies to a unanimous mobilization of the world of culture in favour of building the sustainable world of tomorrow.
