Aalto Sustainability Hub network’s activities began in 2018. The objectives of the network are to bring researchers from different fields together, facilitate the inclusion of sustainable development perspectives in teaching and to promote sustainable development as an extensive part of the university’s operation.
Sustainability at Aalto University
We are committed to promoting sustainability through research and education as well as in our campus development and other daily practices.
Research for sustainability
Complex sustainability challenges like climate change, loss of biodiversity and global inequality call for ground-breaking and societally impactful research. Our key research areas give us a unique chance for creating practice-relevant knowledge on cutting-edge sustainability solutions.
Education for sustainability
Our aim is to integrate sustainability into all education at Aalto. All our Bachelor's and Master's Degree programmes will include content on sustainability by 2020.
Understood through all its dimensions - ecological, social, economic and cultural - we are committed to carrying out our activities in a sustainable manner. For example, we work actively to develop the energy efficiency of our property portfolio and to reduce energy consumption in our campuses.
Aalto Sustainability Hub
To address complex sustainability challenges, Aalto Sustainability Hub works to increase interdisciplinary collaboration and to promote sustainability in teaching, campus development and other operations at Aalto.
Aalto is the first Finnish university to sign universities' global Sustainable Development Goals Accord.
We promote and facilitate Aalto University’s research and education for global sustainable development.
