A few examples of real-life projects executed during the 4th year specialization Sustainability Challenge of HAS University of Applied Sciences.
"We’re leading in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainable production. We’re the only brewery in the world that operates according to ISO 26000 guidelines. We’d like you to advise us on whether we should continue operating according to ISO26000, or if can we improve further? We’re particularly interested in a stakeholder analysis. Stakeholders are very important to Bavaria, and we really want to know what they think of our CSR policy."
“In February 2014, at the initiative of our municipality, 18 organisations signed the Durability Agreement. This agreement has led to the establishment of the Energy Foundation, which aims at saving 11 kilotons of CO2 per year.”
In the village of Schalkwijk, a special area within the Dutch municipality of Houten, HAS University of Applied Sciences students designed a centre for the indoor vertical- layer production of vegetables, which also serves for educational purposes.
The design meets both the required visual values and the sustainable goals.
