Verstas Architects has been awarded the EcoCompass Certificate

For us, environmental responsibility means concrete actions in our own operations. We are committed to saving natural resources and increasing the positive impact on the environment. As a proof of this, we have been awarded the EcoCompass Certificate which is the environmental management system of the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation complying with the international ISO 14001 standard.  

The building of the system at Verstas has been led by Juho Manka with a team consisting of other employees. With support from EcoCompass, an initial survey was made, environmental impacts were assessed as well as goals and measures were defined. Verstas Architects’ own environmental program in 2023-2024 will focus especially on influence, communication, natural diversity and procurement. 

Our environmental promise is as follows: 

We operate environmentally wise in close cooperation with our clients. We want to be the primary partner of environmentally conscious clients. 

We are constantly developing our environmental expertise to enhance responsible design work and tasks. 

We highlight environmental topics in our communications. 

We incorporate tools for examining the environmental effects in our design projects.
