Risks and environment master’s degree - Environmental management - waste - energy



The Risks and environment master's degree is a national diploma.

Its main objective is to train senior executives in the field of waste treatment with a more particularly marked orientation towards their energy recovery.

The different aspects of waste management, namely its collection, sorting, recycling and treatment, as well as its energy recovery, are considered. The implementation of treatment and recovery projects in accordance with current regulations and energy management requires the acquisition of knowledge of standards (environmental law, ICPE, R347), management systems (ISO14001, 26000, 50000) as well as mastery of accounting information and knowledge of legal structures.

Approaches such as eco-design, Life Cycle Analysis and the completion of a Bilan carbone® (carbon footprint) enable the assessment of environmental impacts and the optimisation of waste and energy management.
