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 goals are: 

Helsinki 

  • Reduce electricity consumption by 5 per cent by end of 2016 (from 2013)
  • Reduce the amount of mixed waste by 5 per cent by end of 2016 (from 2013)
  • Reduce paper consumption by 7 per cent by end of 2016 (from 2013)

Vaasa 

  • Reduce electricity consumption by 5 per cent by end of 2016 (from 2013)
  • Reduce the amount of mixed waste by 5 per cent by end of 2016 (from 2013)
  • Keep paper consumption on the same low level as reached in 2013
