responsibility and sustainable development in Lapland UAS

At Lapland University of Applied Sciences (Lapland UAS), responsibility is based on our values – trust, open-mindedness, and a sense of community. Responsibility is also an integral part of the Lapland UAS quality system, in which we aim for continuous improvement and effective activities.

Agreed ways of working and goals set for activities are the cornerstones of quality management. In practice, this means continuous choices: we agree how we work, and we work how we have agreed. When we make choices, we also consider what kind of impact we want our activities to have, and how we aim to achieve that impact. It is equally important to consider how our choices act as enablers, and how we measure the achievement of our goals and assess the continuous improvement of our activities.

Responsibility defines everything we do

At Lapland UAS, responsibility is our choice and our way of working, every day. Through our goals and actions, we can achieve the changes for which we strive, building and radiating a positive impact in our operating environment. We build our impact in cooperation and interaction with different parties.
