[THE Impact Rankings] 12.2.1 Ethical Sourcing Policy

At Yonsei University, ethical sourcing is a cornerstone of our commitment to sustainability and responsible consumption. We are dedicated to ensuring that our products and goods meet high ethical standards throughout their sourcing, production, and distribution processes.

Our ethical sourcing policy emphasizes the importance of sustainability and reducing environmental impact.

[THE Impact Rankings] 12.2.5 Policy for Minimisation of Plastic Use, 12.2.6 Policy for Minimisation of Disposable Items

Yonsei University is dedicated to minimizing disposable items and reducing plastic usage as part of our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability. 

At our Yonsei University Co-op Goods stores, we are actively promoting the use of multi-use containers, steering customers away from disposable plastic containers. By advocating for the use of reusable containers by providing discounts, we aim to significantly reduce single-use plastic waste and encourage sustainable practices among our students, faculty, and staff.

Additionally, Institute for Global Engagement and Empowerment (IGEE) funded a student project team which encouraged multi-use containers both on and off-campus. This student-led initiative includes the introduction of multi-use container collection machines, strategically placed in collaboration with local cafes near our campus. This innovative approach aims to encourage the community to embrace eco-friendly practices, actively contributing to the reduction of single-use plastic waste.

[THE Impact Rankings] 12.2.7 Disposable Policy: Extensions to Services, 12.2.8 Minimisation Policies Extended to Suppliers

Yonsei University is committed to extending its sustainability efforts to include supply chain policies aimed at compling to disposable policies and minimizing single-use plastic waste. 

One aspect of our approach involves encouraging our outsourcing companies to adopt the use of eco-friendly and recyclable materials in their operations. By advocating for environmentally conscious practices throughout our supply chain, we aim to reduce the use of disposable items and minimize plastic waste, thus contributing to a more sustainable environment.

Furthermore, our commitment to sustainability extends to the enterprises we collaborate with. Institute for Higher Education at Yonsei University, in collaboration with SK, jointly organized an elective course in 2022 titled "Social Value and Social Innovation." This elective course serves as a platform to raise awareness and promote the importance of social value and innovation, emphasizing the significance of sustainable practices in private sectors. Through this collaborative effort, we aim to instill a culture of sustainability and environmental responsibility, influencing policies that prioritize the use of eco-friendly and recyclable materials within these enterprises.

Encouraging off-campus institutions to use eco-friendly, recyclable materials

These efforts reflect our commitment to not only promoting sustainable practices within our immediate community but also influencing our partners and collaborators to adopt more eco-conscious policies throughout their supply chain, furthering our collective contribution to a more environmentally sustainable future. For example, in the final showcase of student projects tackling various social issues (2022), there was a case that commemorative plaques made of recycled materials were given to the award winners.
