Sustainability & inclusivity development: KEDGE IMPAKT

KEDGE aims to be an original school with a differentiating educational approach. It has taken on the challenge to align its goals on sustainability and inclusiveness (already at the heart of its strategy) with the UN’s objectives.


Frise Kedge Impakt


In order to strengthen its positioning and its ambition in terms of sustainable development and inclusiveness, the school has grouped its initiatives under a single meaningful banner: KEDGE IMPAKT.

« At KEDGE, we are convinced that a promising future is not the result of a single commitment. Our world is a living, breathing, rich and complex ecosystem. The challenges to be met whether it being social, economic or environmental are all linked and interdependent. This is why we are collectively committed: students, professors, researchers, collaborators, graduates to encourage positiveness at the heart of our projects. This is the ambition of KEDGE IMPAKT. »

5 challenges / 5 strategic projects for 2025

The schools’ ambition is to strengthen key areas launched at the end of 2020 to make KEDGE an exemplary and coherent school by 2025.

The "KEDGE IMPAKT" strategic project covers five of the schools’ key challenges: strategy & governance, teaching & training, research, environmental management, inclusiveness & social policy. 

A network of committed players 

The school relies on two internal networks made up of nearly 150 impaKtors: committed collaborators/professors and students, each working in their own field of expertise to achieve these ambitious goals.

An annual report

For the past 10 years, a reference guide has been published annually reporting the progress of the actions of all involved: The KEDGE IMPAKT sustainable development report.

Performance evaluation: The Positive Impakt Rating (PIR) 

The Positive Impact Rating objective is to follow the gradual transformation of management schools towards greater integration of the Sustainable Development Goals into their strategy.

Its effectiveness will be measured by a sustainable development committee. KEDGE has chosen the Positive Impact Rating as a synthetic performance indicator.

The school has set itself the goal of moving from level 3 "Progressing" in 2020 to level 4 "transforming" in 2025, thus joining the top ten institutions ranked worldwide.
