Shaping a responsible future

Our activities are not limited to our own organisation, but are also demonstrated by our accession to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and our memberships

By joining the UN Global Compact, the UAS BFI Vienna supports the ten principles of responsible action in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, as well as the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our activities at the University of Applied Sciences, as well as our degree programmes and the Executive Programme MSc Sustainability & Responsible Management reflect this.

Under the title "Comprehensive Implementation of Sustainability at the University of Applied Sciences BFI Vienna", we presented our commitment to continuously expand and implement sustainability in teaching, research, governance and events and thus achieved 2nd place in the category "Structural Anchoring".

In addition, as a member of the Alliance for Sustainable Higher Education (BNH), we were awarded 2nd place in the category "Regional Cooperation" together with the 12 other alliance partners from across the universities.
