Environmental Management

It is one of BOKU's special concerns as a responsible university to actively participate in the protection of the environment and help develop an organization that is sustainable. Thus, since 2005 we have been developing an environmental management system based on the European Ecological Audit Directive (EMAS-VO 761/2001) since the summer of 2005.

The European Ecological Audit Directive (EMAS-VO 761/2001) requires organizations to voluntarily contribute higher environmental protection than required by law. These organizations are regularly audited by government-certified environmental auditors and disclose their environmental statement.

Information on which objectives and measures have been realized by BOKU so far can be found at

It aims to generate awareness within BOKU and to communicate – internally and externally – that BOKU and its members attach great importance to acting in an ethically considerate manner.
