Raising awareness, training and promoting the value of the staff and structures involved are crucial to the success of the CNRS transition plan announced in November 2022. It is against this backdrop that the CNRS has launched its first call for CNRS Low Carbon projects in May 2023, focusing on four areas: procurement, digital, mobility and energy.
The application submitted by CEREGE's Green Unit in response to the CNRS call for low-carbon projects was selected in June 2023 by the CNRS selection committee, represented by Blandine DE GEYER, National Sustainable Development Officer.
CEREGE's management, clearly committed to an "environmental transition" approach, wishes to reduce the Unit's carbon footprint by reducing the impact of consumption and changing practices, following a trajectory based on indicators.
The project submitted by CEREGE is one of the 32 winners of the CNRS's first call for low-carbon projects, out of 93 applications submitted to participate in the facilitation support scheme.
CEREGE will then be able to share its experience with other units making the transition.
