Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility (SDRS) actions

Polytech Marseille's DDRS initiatives reflect the school's commitment to its local community through concrete actions and studies carried out by its students and staff. These actions concern the school's activities, from training to research, as well as those linked to its operations and its social and cultural commitments.

  • Polytech Marseille actions

    • Solar: setting up a photovoltaic teaching platform that can be used for practical work, but also as a support for the development of innovative projects. Connected to the buildings, the platforms will produce the equivalent of 10 full electric vehicle loads per week.

    • Selective sorting, quantities collected: Cardboard cups = 39 kg, Cans = 46 kg, Plastic bottles = 40 kg

    • Building consumption: Measurements of fluid consumption (electricity/gas/water) enable us to implement a policy of reduction.

    • Biodiversity: "Flowers for bees" initiative, pollination of campus green spaces

  • Initiatives in collaboration with Aix-Marseille University

    Mobility :

    • Bicycle shelter
    • Electric vehicle charging stations being installed on the Luminy campus
    • Implementation of the Klaxit carpooling application

    Environment :

    • Recup'élec operation on the Château-Gombert site: collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment for recycling
  • Taking action

    "Small or large, every action deserves its place. What's important is the movement and commitment you put into it! The aim of this interface is to encourage the emergence of new cross-functional initiatives.

    You are a company, an association, a public institution or a component of the University, and you would like to collaborate with Polytech Marseille

Optimizing resources

  • Sustainable buildings

    In a context where environmental protection and the energy transition are becoming increasingly important, higher education establishments such as engineering schools must play an exemplary role in terms of sustainability. To meet these challenges and demonstrate environmental responsibility, our engineering school has implemented an ambitious policy to reduce the energy consumption of its buildings.

    This policy aims to optimize the energy efficiency of our infrastructures by implementing concrete, innovative measures. To achieve this, in-depth studies are carried out to assess the energy performance of our buildings, identify the areas of greatest consumption and define short- and long-term reduction targets.

    At the same time, intelligent energy management solutions are implemented to regulate and optimize energy consumption according to the specific needs of each space.

    Raising awareness and involving students and school staff also play a key role in this policy of reducing energy consumption. Awareness campaigns are organized to promote good energy practices, such as switching off unnecessary lights, rational use of electrical equipment and responsible management of air conditioning.

    By adopting a holistic approach, our engineering school is committed to becoming a model of excellence in energy efficiency. Through this policy of reducing energy consumption in buildings, we are demonstrating our determination to reconcile academic performance with respect for the environment, by training responsible engineers who are aware of tomorrow's energy challenges.
