Contractual Research in SD & CSR

Since 2008, special partnerships in the field of SD have been forged with the La Poste Group, GrDF and Fidal. Since 2013, TBS has developed research partnerships (which are a source of external funding) in the fields of SD and CSR applied to accounting and performance management and also to environmental economics.

  • Intangible assets (Autorité des Normes Comptables [French Accounting Standards Authority])
  • Performance indicators linked to sustainable development (DANONE)
  • Role of financial directors in sustainable development (Institute of Management Accountants Research Foundation)
  • Accounting and carbon strategy in SMEs (ADEME)
  • Accounting and the assessment of the overall performance of VSE/SMEs (CIFRE/ANRT, OIKOS Laboratory).

Between 2013 and 2017, TBS Education was part of an interdisciplinary research project looking into the feasibility of a recycling sector devoted to composite materials for the aeronautics sector (“SEARRCH” project). The project was financed by ANR and coordinated by ALTRAN. It provided an opportunity to work on the subject of environmental economics in collaboration with a process engineering laboratory, a molecular sciences laboratory and ALTRAN’s researchers.
