Oulu UAS has carried out focused environmental work since its establishment in 1996. The principles of sustainable development (SD) are now taken into account in all operations (teaching, research and development work, and everyday actions), to which each campus of Oulu UAS is committed. The SD team of Oulu UAS co-ordinates the implementation, that is done in close co-operation with students, partners and stakeholders.Politics of Sustainable Development in Oulu University of Applied Sciences
Oulu University of Applied Sciences (Oulu UAS) is a northern operator for sustainable development. It is included in the objectives of the education we provide and is also integrated in our research, development and innovation work. Our staff and students acknowledge their ecological, economic and sociocultural responsibilities and are committed to systematically enhancing the principles of sustainable development in their actions.
Our sustainable development work follows the requirements of the ISO 14001 environmental standard. Our work is directed primarily towards strengthening environmental know-how and awareness. We also take into account actions, the environmental impacts of which we can indirectly affect, such as stake-holder co-operation and maintenance operations. We make sure that we have enough resources for sustainable development work. We also monitor regularly the progress of the work and fulfil the requirements set to us by the law and authorities.
The politics has been discussed in the management group of Oulu UAS on 18 March 2015, and the rector has signed it.
