Sustainable development


Sustainable development report 2014

Sustainable development aims to allow – in such varied fields as environmental preservation, social responsibility and economic progress – for the fulfilment of “the needs of the present without undermining the capacity of future generations to meet their own needs”.

This fundamental goal is at the heart of the national sustainable development strategy, which the French Government committed to on July 27 2010 and which the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac’s two supervisory ministries – the Ministry of Culture and Communication and the Ministry of Research and Higher Education – have put into practice in their respective fields.
