The University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna has set itself the task of making its positive contribution to environmental protection and sustainability. A separate EMAS environmental management system was set up in Campus Management for this purpose. Vetmeduni would like to pull together with all employees and students on the subject of environmental protection. EMAS stands for Eco-Management and Audit Scheme - the environmental management system of the European Union. It is a tool that helps companies and organizations of all sizes and in all sectors to continuously improve their environmental performance.

The Vetmeduni has been certified according to EMAS and ISO 14001: 2015 since March 27, 2019.
