At Hanken School of Economics we consider the endorsement of the Principles for Responsible Management Education as a natural step that an international business school should take towards developing the education to promote sustainable development.
On this page you will find Hakens strategy for sustainable development (translated version to be published shortly) and the PRME-Report.
PRME - Principles for Responsible Management Education
Hanken has as the first university in Finland been accepted as a member to and signed the principles of responsible management education - PRME. The initiative is a part of a call for business schools and academic institutions to keep up with a worldwide corporate responsibility (Corporate Social Responsibility). The principles were presented by a group of researchers and academic organisations in connection to the UN conference UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in July 2007.

Study module in Corporate Responsibility
Since the study year 2008-2009 Hanken offers a study module in Corporate Responsibility (CR), which is designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of issues related to corporate responsibility and management ethics. The introduction of a study module that focuses on CR follows Hanken's decision to endorse the Principles for Responsible Management Education. It takes a cross-disciplinary approach combining perspectives on CR from Supply Chain Management and Corporate Geography, Politics and Business, Accounting, Management and Organisation, and Commercial Law.

WWF Green Office designation
WWF's Green Office is an environmental service for offices. With its help, workplaces are able to reduce their burden on the environment, achieve savings and slow down climate change. Offices that fulfill the required criteria are granted rights to the Green Office logo by WWF.
As a measure in the Hanken environmental plan Hanken School of Economics signed a contract with WWF in the autumn of 2009 and begun the process of becoming a Green Office. Hanken received the designation and the right to use the Green Office logo on October 29 2010.
Hanken's aim is to reduce the use of paper by 10 per cent and the use of electricity by 5 per cent during 2011.
