During summer 2018, a broad consultation of internal and external stakeholders led to a report aimed to establish a master plan for the urban development of the ÉTS campus. The majority of the recommendations contained in this report are related to sustainable development. The five main aspects of the consultation are as followed:
Sustainable mobility
Street furniture
Security
Beautification and greening
Territorial identity
This report details all the recommendations: https://www.etsmtl.ca/getattachment/A-surveiller/CampusETS/CAMPUS-ETS-RapportFinalConsultations-abrege.pdf

The 2017-2020 Strategic Research Plan clearly identifies sustainable development as the common denominator of its strategy. It is defined as the transversal element of the eight priority research themes. The eight priority research themes are: aerospace, energy, environment, infrastructure and built environments, materials and manufacturing, health, information and communication technologies, and land transport. The strategic research plan states: "Since the role of the engineer is to put science at the service of humanity, ÉTS also recognizes that university-based engineering research must be carried out with a view to achieving positive impacts not only in economic terms, but also in terms of the environment and society, that is, by promoting a focus on sustainable development. » The 2017-2020 Strategic Research Plan : https://www.etsmtl.ca/Recherche/Ressources/Documents-reference/PRS_2017-2020_vcourte_francais.pdf
