IESE aims to lead the society towards a better understanding of the environment and its transformation due to human interaction. We aim to advance the knowledge of the environmental issues by sharing our expertise in measured and controlled environments. We seek to become a leading center in environmental studies, with differential factors such as internationalization and interaction with stakeholders, under a framework of sustainability based on the values of social responsibility. We want to preserve a healthy environment and pass it on to the next generation. We seek to work in collaboration with universities, research institutions, public bodies, industry and non-governmental organizations, to harmonize ecological, economic and social interests in respect of water usage and environmental interaction. We must be able to forecast and table solutions to environment issues being faced and impending globally in general and for our nation and in particular. Our students must become torch bearers of environmental protection for our tomorrow.
