Hansel’s green initiatives
Hansel is a member of the Green Office network, which consists of some 150 organisations in Finland. Green Office is an environmental programme developed by WWF Finland. Its objectives include promoting companies’ environmental responsibility and reducing the environmental burden caused by offices.
Sustainability is taken into account in Hansel’s internal operations. Hansel keeps track of environmental key figures on the consumption of electricity and paper, travel, as well as the procurement of equipment and furniture. WWF’s Climate Calculator, which is a Green Office tool, is utilised in the calculations. The emission figures are not adjusted to the growth of the business operations or the number of personnel.
New Green Office actions in 2019 included replacing old light fixtures in dark offices with LEDs and encouraging the employees to use sustainable transport by procuring shared city bike cards for the employees to use when going to meetings. Hansel rents facilities at the main post office building in Helsinki. The building received a LEED certificate in 2019.
