Towards more ecoresponsible research

After several decades of scientific research, the link between human activities, climate change and biosphere degradation is now clearly established and documented on a global scale. Foresight studies show that there is a high risk of the situation becoming irreversible in many socio-ecosystems – possibly in the medium term – if we continue on our current trajectory of resource use and greenhouse gas emissions.

Aware of the urgent need to bring our research and development activities into line with the need to reduce our environmental impact, we have been carrying out the platform’s GHG assessment since 2019, using the labos1point5 collective tool.

MetaToul platform

  • is committed to assessing the carbon impact of its activities and raising awareness among its staff.
  • is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions linked to its research and development activities, with an annual reduction target.
  • undertakes to put in place a collective reflection on actions that will enable it to implement the necessary measures to reduce GHG emissions in a consensual, effective and short-term manner, using a citizens’ convention method with incentives and awareness-raising actions: all platform members are involved in this reflection and randomly assigned to the various reflection groups set up.

Implementing an Ecoresponsible strategy

Minimize and reduce our carbon footprint by optimizing our processes and operations, while meeting MetaToul’s mission and the needs of our communities.
