Hanken supports the Ilmastoveivi 2019 climate campaign

Ilmastoveivi 2019 is a climate campaign launched by private citizens appealing for more sustainable climate policy in the European Union. Hanken has shown its institutional support for the campaign by signing the petition.

The goal of the campaign is to gather 500,000 signatures.
– Decision-making should be based on high-quality scientific research so that the 1,5-degree goal is achieved. The research conducted at Hanken about the interaction between economy and climate can contribute to an ambitious climate policy and new business solutions, says Rector Karen Spens.

In order to mitigate the impacts of climate change there is a need for cooperation, and on the global scale the actions of the European Union matter. As the President of the Council of the EU from 1 July, Finland has the power to influence what is discussed and decided at an EU level in the Autumn of 2019. This is a unique opportunity for Finland to lead EU towards more sustainable climate policy.
