Local environmental work

In the daily work, we reduce our travels and have organic fruit in our lunch rooms, just to mention to examples. Our service staff are well-informed to handle local environment issues like rubbish 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.
