SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

Centrale Nantes decided to assess the current state of integration of sustainable development into its initial and continuing training courses, and to clarify the contribution of training activities to sustainable development objectives (objective 2.1 of the Sustainable Development Action Plan - 2021).

Course supervisors have thus pinpointed 2 key SDGs to which their courses contribute.

SDG 12 is the most frequently cited behind SDG 9 for the general engineering programme, with regard to both specialisations and professional options.
