ESSEC partner of the Deauville Green Awards
The first edition of the ‘Deauville Green Awards’, a festival for corporate films on ecology and sustainable development, was held on April 11th and 12th in the Theater of the Deauville Casino.
Corporate social responsibility and sustainable development issues are at the heart of companys’ and institutions’ strategies. They are also some of our professors’ areas of research and expertise.
It is therefore not surprising that ESSEC is supporting this festival, which proposes an original and innovative approach to exploring these major issues, through a top-level audiovisual competition and ideas workshops involving stakeholders in the field.
Anne Jeny-Cazavan, a professor specialized in the evaluation of the intangible and the media sector, organized and ran a conference entitled ‘Governance, CSR, diversity: what are the challenges facing corporations?’.
This round table discussion, under the aegis of the partnership with ESSEC, held at the Theater of the Deauville Casino, welcomed Charles Cho, an associate professor and specialist in social reporting practices, and Viviane de Beaufort, law professor, who opened the discussion on CSR with governance issues and, in particular, the issue of diversity and the role of women in the workplace.
Geneviève Férone, Director of Sustainable Development at Véolia, contributed to this discussion by shedding light on the exercise of CSR, from the dual viewpoints of a producer of social information and of a user of this information.
ESSEC has proven its commitment to its core values through these corporate and institutional partnerships.
We look forward to participating in the second edition of the festival in 2013!
