Find Out More About ISYY's New Environmental Program!

The Environmental Programme of the Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY) sets the environmental principles and objectives for the Student Union and its activities. The programme describes practical means for implementing the principles and achieving the objectives. 

ISYY acts as a responsible Student Union that promotes sustainable development from an ecological, economic, social and cultural point of view. 

The Environmental Program provides guidelines on how the Student Union takes the environmental aspect into account in various areas of activity, such as events, facilities, transportation, acquisitions and stakeholder cooperation.

Actions that we do for the environment are, for example, as follows:

  • ISYY is committed to serving ethical, eco-friendly food and drink that is locally produced, organic and Fair Trade certified, whenever possible.
  • When traveling, we prefer public transportation and for short meetings, we prefer remote connections.
  • Event advertising and communications are primarily conducted via digital communication channels.
  • At the ISYY offices everything that can be recycled is recycled.
  • Unnecessary consumption of water and energy are avoided at the properties owned by ISYY.

The Environmental Program was approved at the Representative Council meeting on 10 December 2020.
