Quality management of ecological sustainability

Ecological sustainability is established as a part of Uniarts Helsinki’s normal activities. As part of this integration process, we include ecological sustainability as part of Uniarts Helsinki’s quality system and quality management tools. We describe the procedures (planning, practical measures, assessment, development) and responsibilities related to the quality management of ecological sustainability in the Quality Manual. Quality management tools (project work, process work) and related guidelines are updated so that in the future they will take ecological sustainability issues into consideration. 

Uniarts Helsinki’s quality system is audited in the spring of 2024. Uniarts Helsinki has selected quality management of ecological sustainability as its optional theme in the audit. The functionality of these quality management procedures will be assessed as part of the audit. Uniarts Helsinki will compile a self-assessment report where it reviews the effectiveness of its practices, and in addition to this, Uniarts Helsinki will receive feedback from the audit team. The aim is that the university’s practices meet the criteria set for the quality system audit.
