Our commitment to sustainable development
Discover how we are working to fight climate change, implementing measures to transition our student accommodation to renewable energy and reduce their environmental impact.
Since 2021, micampus has made a firm commitment to sustainable development. We now measure the environmental performance of our company. We have calculated our carbon footprint and in 2022 we joined the SBTi (Science Based Targets Initiative) as a company committed to reducing its carbon footprint.
To do so, we need to raise awareness of the ecological footprint among all our residents and ask them to help us reduce it. Together we will promote solutions that help improve the environment, such as the decarbonization plan and the plan to compensate or neutralize greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
But this is only the beginning. At micampus we continue to actively measure and monitor the environmental performance of our facilities, as well as improve the energy efficiency of their design, development and use.

To successfully fulfil our commitment to the environment and reduce our carbon footprint, at micampus we have set these dates with the aim of creating a CO2 emissions compensation plan; improving the energy efficiency of our facilities and reducing consumption.
As a next step, at micampus we want to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and be carbon neutral by 2040.
Moreover, at micampus we have included an ESG policy in our new Ethics Code, in addition to a responsible purchasing policy, which act as a foundation on which to create a culture based on responsible consumption and a sustainable outlook.
Our ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) policy is a response to the commitments and operating principles in environmental and social matters, as well as in good governance, which we are taking forward at micampus. These measures are designed to be long-term, both for the company and its stakeholders.
