Green Office Consumer Habit result

In March 144 students and staff answered the WWF’s Green Office Consumer Habit Questionnaire. In the questionnaire we got tips and we also looked over our consumer habits.

This year we had an even better result than last year. Our answering percentage was much higher than in the WWF network. Totally 5651 persons answered the questionnaire with the average point 75,4/100 and we scored 78,2/100! Well done Arcada!
