"The DD&RS label is a formidable tool, built by and for higher education and research players, which makes it possible to build and monitor an ambitious sustainable development policy. It is a real source of pride to be able to accompany its evolution and ensure that more schools and universities benefit from it."

A label to promote the commitment of higher education institutions
The labeling system, known as the SD&RS Label - Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility - for higher education was created in 2015. It is the result of the collective work of a dozen universities and grandes écoles, the Conférence des Grandes Écoles (CGE), the Conférence des Présidents d'Université (CPU), the Ministry in charge of Sustainable Development, the Ministry in charge of Higher Education and Research, and the Réseau des étudiants pour une société écologique et solidaire (RESES).
This label aims to encourage higher education institutions - places of education, life and research - to be more exemplary and allows them to promote their commitment nationally and even internationally. It also allows institutions to increase their skills within a group of committed institutions through their participation in the labeling committee.
