Green Science Park
Green Science Park
Joensuu Science Park Ltd. wishes to be an operator who takes responsibility for the environment and whose actions have a genuine effect on reducing humanity’s carbon footprint both through procedures carried out in the property and offices and through increasing awareness about the environment.
We aim to minimise the environmental effects caused by properties during their life cycle with the help of professional management of environment and property issues. Our Green Science Park operating model steers setting environmental targets, allocating resources and developing operations in all services and operations of the Science Park.
We try to achieve environmental targets more efficiently by using new technologies and operating models in our operation and by creating networks between various fields of operations and operators. We regularly monitor, measure and analyse the fulfilment of our environmental targets that aim at continuous improvement.
We aim to offer our customers a high-quality, secure, pleasant and above all, an environment-friendly working environment!
An environmental aspect is always present when we develop our facilities. What does it mean in practice? So far, the following among other things:
Environmental aspects are visible in many ways to customers of the Science Park
We promote emission-free transport! At the end of the Science Park building 1, a charging point has been set up for two electric cars. The charging point is public and belongs to the Fortum Charge & Drive network. Fortum Charge & Drive, a pioneer in providing electric car charging services, operates in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Iceland. Of the 100 charging points in Finland, 34 are fast charging. With a total of more than 1,450 charging points, the Fortum Charge & Drive network is the largest of its kind in the Nordics.
You can check the locations of the charging points in a special map service https://map.chargedrive.com/ or by using the Android or iOS application. To use the socket-type charging point, EV drivers need to bring their own public charging cable (type 2 cable). Charging costs EUR 0.04 per minute. Charging at the charging point is activated and paid for by text message, an RFID key or by using a smartphone application.
Joensuu Science Park is a Green Office. WWF Green Office is an environmental management system intended for offices that will help workplaces reduce their environmental load, achieve savings and slow down climate change.
