HAM has been awarded an EcoCompass certificate
HAM Helsinki Art Museum has been awarded an EcoCompass certificate for identifying and addressing environmental issues in accordance with the EcoCompass environmental management system.
Responsibility and ecological sustainability are HAM Helsinki Art Museum’s key values. The museum complies with the EcoCompass environmental management system, which guides the museum’s strategy and ensures that its operations are as environmentally friendly as possible. In 2020, HAM sought to implement the EcoCompass environmental management system as part of the City of Helsinki’s climate initiative to advance the Carbon Neutral Helsinki action plan.
According to the EcoCompass audit report, HAM’s strengths are scalable solutions, committed staff, and resource efficiency – the smart and effective use of materials.
EcoCompass, developed by the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation, is a system based on international standards of environmental management. It includes ten environmental criteria with which an organisation committed to the system must comply. The EcoCompass certificate is valid for three years, throughout which an auditor monitors the achievement of the objectives.
