We take environmental responsibility in all parts of the business. This means that we are thinking about the environment when we design our buildings. We make demands on our partners and suppliers.
Environmental and sustainable campus
BI intends to contribute to and develop a sustainable society both in the way we teach and how we operate.
All BI’s campuses are already Miljøfyrtårn (Green Beacon) certified and by the end of 2019 all conferences and events at BI shall be organized in accordance with the requirements set by the Norwegian Environmental Agency Miljøfyrtårn (Environmental Green Beacon) for green conferences.
Campus Oslo gets all its heating and cooling from Nydalen Energy Central (geothermal). BI’s new Campus Trondheim is already certified as BREEAM NOR Excellent. The main part of the energy consumption comes from renewable energy.
Ensure that the proportion of renewable energy at BI’s Environmental Campus in Stavanger will be superior to 90 %. The building will be certified as BREEAM NOR Excellent.
Energy efficient campuses
With the environment in mind
Every year BI is implementing a climate audit and BI works together with companies who maintain sustainability practices to all our campuses.
We try to use Skype for Business to minimize the need to travel to attend meetings and have also bought climate quotas for our flights.
All our campuses offer healthy, nutritious and short-travelled food for our students and employees. We have taken an active role in contributing to biodiversity by having beehives on the roof.
