Handelsdagarna goes sustainable
Handelsdagarna is the largest annual career fair at Stockholm School of Economics - and this year they are more sustainable than ever.
Handelsdagarna goes sustainable. 53 out of 73 companies participating this year have chosen to say yes to the students´ suggestion to climate compensate their participation by donating 500 kronor. The money will be donated to a tree plant organization. This is shown by a green plant in each company´s display at the fair.
- We were already an eco labeled event, but we wanted to do more this year. We are vegetarian, paper free and have serious recycling, says Fredrika Bruu, second year student at SSE and part of the project group arranging Handelsdagarna.
At the same time the new group, SSE Students for Climate Action, started a new initiative. Ask for Action is a campaign providing questions the students can ask the companies regarding their engagement for the climate.
- We want to send a strong signal that climate engagement is an important issue for us when we search for future employers, says Elvira Andersson from SSE Students for Climate Action.
