Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
During 2016, taking into account the commitment of “CES” to social responsibility, it was decided to transcend and start working on the theme of sustainable development. Therefore, a diagnosis was made in the University keeping in mind its three pillars: environmental, social and economic; Starting from the history of our organization.
In August 2016, we adhered to the Global Compact, committing ourselves to the 10 principles on human rights, labor rights, the environment and the fight against corruption. Moreover, work was also started in favor of the 17 sustainable development goals (SDG).
In 2017, the chair of sustainability is incorporated in all undergraduates, and the offer of continuing education in social responsibility and sustainable development issues begins.
In undergraduate and postgraduate courses we incorporate at least one course on ethics, social responsibility or humanization.
Every year we carry out and support, at least, an event on sustainable development issues, articulated with the issues of global compact and sustainable development goals.
