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
- with the UN Global Compact Network Austria,
- at respACT - austrian business council for sustainable development - Austria's largest network for responsible business,
- in the "Alliance for Sustainable Universities" (since Oct. 2021),
- as well as in the representation of the tertiary education sector in the Board (former Steering Committee) of the Global Compact Network Austria.
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.
