A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with sustainable building operation and maintenance guidelines and policies:

LEED is a very North American certification tool that has not been available to French schools until very recently. LEED certification has not been particularly popular since French new building and construction laws already require energy efficient and ecological standards. For example a new law was passed in 2012 states that all new construction must consume less than 50 kWh/m2 where as former legislation put the bar at 150 kWh/m2.
Since the 1990 a French certification program was put in place. The HQE, high environmental quality, certification is carried out by AFNOR. Other European initiatives have also “landed” while some uses use ISO norms.( HQE®, Leed®, Breeam®, H&E®, NF Logement démarche HQE®....). This richness leads to a number of ways to certify buildings, LEED being one of the less used/newer labels.
Another specifies in French Higher Education Institutions is that many schools are located in historically classified monuments and this leads to a number of difficulties when it comes to remodeling.
Our school does not have certified buildings; indeed we have never sought certification. We are not the owners of our buildings.
However, our main campus is located in a National Parc and the operations and maintenance teams work daily to reduce our environmental impact.
