We care for the environment
The University of Helsinki is committed in promoting sustainable development. According to the University Strategy of 2013-2016 the university advocates sustainable development in its research and other activities both in Finland and across the world. Our goal is for the university to be known for utilising its research results and learning environment as is recognises and fulfils its role in promoting wellbeing and justice.
The University of Helsinki is also committed to reduce its own environment load. The UH Center for Properties and Facilities coordinates and is responsible for the environmental actions of the university. The WWF Green Office environmental management system is in use at the Viikki campus.
Helsinki University Centre for Environment, HENVI, carries out and coordinates environmental research and teaching. All faculties of the University of Helsinki are participating in the activities of HENVI. The aim of HENVI is to strengthen and enhance interdisciplinary research and teaching and to raise public awareness of important environmental issues.
