Sustainable development

Commitment and Scope

The development and implementation of a sustainable development plan is a priority for the management and artistic direction of the Music Arsenal.


This plan, which is continually evolving, applies to all activities of the Music Arsenal, both in terms of administration, in production, distribution, and communication. It is part of a medium-term process and serves as a guideline for all Arsenal collaborators, including members of the management, employees, members of the administrative and contractual committee, with the aim of better environmental stewardship and social equity inclusion.
