ISA 14001 program and Green Grown Campus : 8th year ISO14001 certification and v-2015 update for ISA Lille

Green Grown Campus: all together, students, staff and stakeholders for a better environmental footprint of our campus.

In 2011, ISA became the third French College to obtain ISO 14001 Certification for the full scope of our activities. Seen by the whole economic world as international recognition of environmental engagement, ISO 14001 consists of a frame of references for our environmental actions. Certified since 2011 for ISO 14001 version 2004, ISA has transitioned to the 2015 version of the standard in July 2018. The results of our environmental management system are visible: it has reduced our electricity consumption by 37%, our gas consumption by 26,5% and our water consumption by 28% on our main building between 2011 and 2018.

Top 3 learnings:

  1. Our project is really a unifying institution project which implies both administrators, staff and students.
  2. Our environmental engagements and results are visible, understood by the whole economic world
  3. Our experimented environmental program allows us to evolve towards global sustainable approach

What it means to win

“For the 10 last years, we have already won 20 awards for our environmental or sustainable commitment. They were all on a regional or national scale. To win an International Green Gown Award for our Green Grown Campus, would mean that we have went through and additional step: the international recognition level. “
