ESITC Caen is concerned about the world around us and since its creation has adopted a voluntary approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR).

This continuous improvement approach integrates social, environmental and economic concerns into all of the school's activities: governance, training, research, environmental management, social policy and territorial anchoring.

ESITC Caen signs the Diversity Charter

We are convinced that diversity is an asset for our society. This is why ESITC Caen has signed the Diversity Charter.

This commitment is illustrated by the following actions:

  • Promoting access to our training courses on the principle of equal opportunity,
  • Fight against discrimination,
  • Transmit values of solidarity,
  • Communicate and raise awareness (training, screen, website...),
  • Improve and innovate in terms of HR approaches (recruitment, training, etc.)

Professional equality between women and men 

While the principle of "equal pay for equal work" is enshrined in law, women's pay is still on average 9% lower than men's. The law also stipulates that women's pay must be equal to that of men. 
The Law for the Freedom to Choose One's Professional Future places an obligation on companies to achieve results. It created the Gender Equality Index.
The Gender Equality Index is composed of 5 main criteria (the gender pay gap, the gender pay gap for individual increases, the gender pay gap for promotions, the number of female employees who receive a salary increase after returning from maternity leave, parity among the 10 highest paid employees) which assess the inequalities between women and men in companies in the form of a score out of 100.
Corrective measures will have to be implemented if the index is below 75 points out of 100.

Train responsible engineers

CSR is more than a discipline. It is a skill that cuts across all the professions of the civil engineer. Ethics, training in a sustainable approach and responsible management are an integral part of ESITC Caen's training programmes.


Innovating for Tomorrow

The research work of ESITC Caen's laboratory on sustainable construction and eco-materials benefits construction companies.

This expertise also benefits students, who can take courses on cutting-edge subjects:

  • Energy optimisation of buildings
  • Architecture and bio-climatic urban planning 
  • Environmental approach applied to road works
  • Recycling and reuse of building materials
  • On and offshore wind turbines


Acting together 

The city of Caen, the Crous Normandie, the University of Caen Normandie, EM Normandie, ESITC Caen, the Caen/Cherbourg ESAM, ENSICAEN and the FCBN - Fédération Campus Basse-Normandie "act together" for the environment.

Because global warming and the depletion of natural resources are everyone's business, all of these Normandy institutions - institutions, local authorities and student federation - have initiated a local collective initiative for students. Through their action plan, they aim to change their actions and daily practices to increase the effectiveness of sustainable development policies on campus and contribute to the image of a responsible territory.

This dynamic has led to the national label "Agir ensemble" (Acting together), created on 23 October 2019 to enhance and increase the visibility of local collective initiatives mobilising users.

CSR commitment - New step: E3D regional labeling

LESITC Caen is formalising its Sustainable Development approach through the E3D programme, supported by the Normandy Region for Education and Social and Environmental Responsibility. 

Since October 2020, as part of the school's strategy and at the request of its governance, the SD RS Steering Committee has carried out a broad diagnosis of the school's SD RS commitments in research, teaching, the environment, social policy, etc.

This work has been recognised by the E3D label (level 1), the following levels are accessible, year after year in 2022 and 2023.

This formalisation will enable the school to carry out a self-assessment in the CIRCES programme, which groups together the schools and universities in Higher Education that are most committed to SD RS, and to obtain the label from its peers.

Dispositif de signalement des Violences Sexuelles et Sexistes

BUILDERS École d'ingénieurs s'engage auprès de ses parties-prenantes pour assurer à tous d'évoluer dans un environnement de travail sûr et respectueux.

C'est pourquoi nous avons mis en place un dispositif de signalement pour prévenir les violences sexuelles et sexistes, ainsi que pour aider les membres qui en ont été victimes.

Les collaborateurs ont suivi une formation pour sensibiliser nos étudiants et notre personnel à ces questions et leur donner les outils pour identifier et réagir aux situations de violences sexuelles et sexistes. 

BUILDERS École d'ingénieurs croit en la responsabilité collective de créer un environnement sûr et inclusif pour tous. Un groupe de travail œuvre au quotidien faire de notre école un lieu où chacun se sent respecté, valorisé et en sécurité.

Je suis un étudiant ou collaborateur BUILDERS École d'ingénieurs et je souhaite effectuer un signalement
