CSRD and CSR training

We offer CSRD training courses for executives, managers and operational staff. We organize training courses, conferences and workshops to raise awareness, understand and take action on ecological issues.

CSRD training

We offer you exclusive training on the European CSRD directive in three modules led by expert trainers, either face-to-face or by videoconference. Our approach combines rigor and strategic vision, in the belief that this text presents an opportunity for organizations to transform their business models and their financial and operational management.

  • For managers – 2 hours
  • For managers – 1 day
  • For operational staff – 3 days


Awareness-raising is the first step in implementing an ambitious CSR strategy. It enables employees to understand the issues at stake in a rational way, thanks to the scientific approach proposed, but also in a sensitive way, thanks to the human and environmental impacts highlighted.

Strategy consulting

We support your corporate strategy by integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) dimensions into the heart of your business model and development trajectory, in order to improve your overall performance, reduce risks, meet the growing expectations of your stakeholders and contribute to a sustainable future.

Three levels of ambition for your strategy:
  • Responsible: Legal and ethical obligation to consider social and environmental impacts and implement mitigation measures.
  • Contributing: Exceeding legal obligations, contributing to solving social and environmental problems, embedding CSR strategy in the business model.
  • Regenerative: Generating net positive impacts, restoring and regenerating living conditions, often in conjunction with a business model transformation.

The diagnosis

  • To identify your strengths and weaknesses.
  • To analyze your external issues.
  • To define your short, medium and long term action levers.
How do you do it?
Development of your Power Impact Matrix ®, a simple and unique tool to identify the impact of your organization and define your action levers.
The matrix is based on the following frameworks:
  • Materiality analysis: identification of priority action levers
  • Carbon Footprint
  • Ecological footprint: pressure analysis by the organization’s activities on its ecosystem
  • CARE® Multi-Capital Accounting

multi-capital CARE

CARE (Comprehensive Accounting in Respect of Ecology) is an innovative multi-capital accounting model developed in France by academics Jacques Richard and Alexandre Rambaud, and by professional Hervé Gbego. For more than 10 years, the model has been the subject of numerous research studies and has been used as an analysis and strategy consulting tool by several large companies and public authorities.

Why implement CARE in your organization?
  • Reconciling financial and extra-financial issues by offering an accounting and scientific approach to ESG issues
  • Be ahead of the game and adopt an ambitious and systemic approach to its CSR strategy
  • Anticipate regulatory requirements and future CSRD guidelines

Bilan Carbone ® (carbon footprint)

The Bilan Carbone® is a diagnostic tool developed by the French Agency for the Environment and Energy Management (ADEME) that allows understand the dependence of an activity on fossil fuels and its impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions.
Why carry out a carbon assessment?
  • Limit your vulnerability to fossil fuels
  • Identify ways to reduce costs
  • Get recognition for your approach and obtain CSR labels more easily
  • Raising awareness of energy and climate issues among your employees and stakeholders
  • Put your CSR strategy on a clear footing

The three scopes of the Bilan Carbone

The carbon footprint allows you to map your dependencies (rather than establishing your responsibilities) in order to anticipate the impacts of the low-carbon transition and to orient your strategy.
