Green Campus was established in December 2011 by the first-year Master students of GSOM SPbU. In May 2012 Green Campus got support of PricewaterhouseCoopers Center for CSR at GSOM SPbU, as a result the agreement for the implementation of mutual projects was achieved.
The name of our initiative implies following definitions:
Campus — is the system of facilities and processes related to GSOM SPbU
Green — is an "appropriate principle of Sustainable development"
Our main goal is to ensure that GSOM SPbU operates in accordance with Sustainable development best practice and principles.
Sustainable development is such a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (G.H.Brundtland). That implies a pattern of economic growth in which resource use, investment flow, research and technology development process, individual development and institutional changes are coordinated and aim to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come (Wikipedia.org).
