Since 2011, Viikki Campus has held a Green Office certificate granted by the World Wildlife Foundation. A WWF auditor visits the campus every three years to ascertain that its operations fulfil the Green Office criteria.
Green Office is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the ecological footprint of the campus. In 2019, all electricity used on Viikki will be renewable – in addition to the self-produced solar energy, the campus is purchasing green hydroelectricity.
Practical measures taken include experiments with utilising lost heat, improved waste sorting, recharging points for electric cars, flower meadows and campus farming, shared equipment and facility use, as well as environmental events. In 2018 all parking spaces on Viikki Campus were made subject to a fee.
