A brief description of the activities and substantive accomplishments of the institution-wide coordinating body or officer during the previous three years:

The campus has two main buildings, and HEC Montréal is a medium-size school. These factors facilitate the communication and collaboration between the SD office with other directions and offices. The sustainability office is linked to both, the Secretary general office and the Infrastructure office, and has strong links with the Pôle Ideos (social innovation). This organizational structure and functional linkages facilitate ccoordination with different departments that have resources, power and influence to advance sustainability in both,academic and operational areas. There is a strong collaboration between all these actors, and the SD office staff benefits from a strong support across the School's Departments to implement the SD strategy.
