Sustainable development and travel
At Aalto, all travel arrangements are made using the most economical means of transport while considering any time saved and whether travelling can be replaced by alternative means of communication.
When booking the flights, direct connections are preferred.
When traveling with alternative means of transport, the passenger must justify in advance the benefits of the alternative option to reducing the carbon footprint.
Compensation for emissions from air travel is voluntary and paid by the traveller.
For environmental reasons, Aalto University does not organize internal seminars or staff recreation days on cruise or scheduled route ships/ferries.
