Sustainability at Business Academy Aarhus

How does Business Academy Aarhus work with sustainability?

Business Academy Aarhus is a large educational institution with a lot of students and employees. We have many programmes and courses in which we teach companies and students about sustainability.

As a company, we also have our own climate footprint, which we are very aware of. We have defined several initiatives that we have been working on for many years. This concerns, for example, energy, the canteen, waste disposal and purchasing.

Sustainability is a continuous process, which is why we try to get better each year. Here you can see the areas we are working with to become more sustainable. And what the next steps are.

The status of each our focus areas was updated in September 2023.

Focus area: Energy

Focus area: Purchasing

Focus area: Canteen

Focus area: Waste disposal

How can you act sustainably as a student or employee?

We have about 10,000 students and course participants at the Academy, as well as about 400 employees. Each of us can try to reduce the climate footprint left every day while at work or studying.

Here are some suggestions:  

  1. Cycle. This does not emit any CO2.
  2. If you can’t cycle, use public transport (bus / light rail)
  3. If you do drive, arrange to drive with others.
  4. Print only when absolutely necessary. Print on both sides of the paper.
  5. Take the stairs instead of the lift.
  6. Only buy food you can actually eat.
  7. Bring a water bottle and refill from the Academy’s water stations.
  8. Hand-in deposit bottles to the canteen so that they can be recycled.
  9. Turn off screens and lights if you are the last to leave a room.
  10. Limit your use of video streaming, etc.
