#bupfimember Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences. At the core of Haaga-Helia’s societal impact is a close and active cooperation with the business community and partners, as well as extremely high employment rates of graduates. In 2018, Haaga-Helia joined the City of Helsinki’s “Ilmastokumppanit” and made a climate commitment to reduce the electricity consumption on campuses and increase the environmental awareness of the students and faculty. The electricity consumption has since then dropped by 8 per cent and Haaga-Helia has also drafted a PRME report (Principles for Responsible Management Education), which is reported to the UN every two years. In 2020 Haaga-Helia was accepted to climatecommitment.fi (ilmastositoumus.fi) and the major goal is to be carbon dioxide neutral by the year 2025.
