EcoCompass audit was approved
Today the European Junior Championships 2018 -event had the audit for EcoCompass certification and passed it.
– This is a big day for the project, says Kirsi Yrjölä, who has been the responsible person for the environmental matters during the EJC-project. EcoCompass includes 10 criteria which the event in question commits itself to comply with. The event is also audited and a certificate is granted.
EcoCompass is based both on the respective Nordic environmental management systems and international standards on environmental management. EcoCompass supports the environmental work. One of the big positive environmental impact in EJC2018 has been the use of tap water. All competitors will have their own, uniquely for EJC2018 designed water bottle, which they can personalize by writing their name on it and fill it up.
– We are so happy and proud of this, continues Yrjölä, when the auditor Marika Nyyssönen asked the first feelings right after the Certification was granted today.
