Local environmental work

In the daily work, we reduce our travels and have organic fruit in our lunch rooms, just to mention to examples. Environmental coordinators are appointed, to handle local environment issues like garbage recycling procedures, energy efficient office spaces, and sustainable purchases of consumables.

Contact Environmental coordinators

To ITM sustainable development means that:

  • the fruit in our lunch rooms are organic
  • we travel by train and that air travel, in cases where they can be motivated, has as low a climate impact as possible
  • electric scooters are available to get around in the neighborhood.
  • our research areas aim at a "sustainable industry and a sustainable society"
  • we sort out the food waste in our lunch rooms
  • we make it easier for employees to commute to work by bike.

Routines for ITM's environmental work

Our environmental management system controls how we work to live up to different environmental requirements. Here you find all the local routines. (In Swedish only)

Travel-free meetings

By meeting through video conferencing instead of traveling, you contribute to all three aspects of sustainable development - reducing carbon dioxide emissions, financial savings and social benefits.

KTH offsets flight emissions

To reduce its environmental impact, KTH is launching a travel offset kitty. The aim is to encourage less air travel. The money raised will be used in projects to reduce KTH emissions and help KTH reach its sustainability goals.
