Environmental training for Employees
KTH employees, and those working on assignments for KTH, should have the appropriate knowledge needed to perform their duties in a manner consistent with KTH's work with the environment and sustainable development.
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.
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.
