Sustainable buildings

Sub-targets for sustainable buildings to be achieved by the end of 2025 at the latest

5.12 In cooperation with property owners, KTH has reduced the purchased energy (electricity, heating, cooling, operational energy), by 3.5% compared with the year before until 2025.

5.13 In cooperation with property owners, KTH has zero emissions of greenhouse gases from the production of purchased electricity, heating, and cooling.

5.14 In cooperation with the property owner, KTH's energy consumption has decreased by 25% (electricity, district heating, cooling) per full-time employee equivalent, full-time equivalent student, and per square meter, without sacrificing the indoor climate (base year 2015).

5.15 In cooperation with property owners, KTH has increased the efficiency of premises use by 15% calculated per full-time equivalent student and full-time equivalent (measured as area per person) (base year 2020).

5.16 In cooperation with property owners, KTH ensures that any new construction and conversions have a lower climate impact than the corresponding type building in 2015.

5.17 In cooperation with property owners, KTH ensures that relevant certifications, including standards for energy efficiency, are used for any new construction and renovations, and that the highest class is sought.

5.18 KTH's buildings and campuses shall feel safe, accessible, and inclusive for everyone there.

5.19 In cooperation with property owners, KTH ensures that renewable building materials are used to an increasing degree in connection with new construction and conversions of KTH's buildings.

Sub-targets for sustainable buildings to be achieved by the end of 2022 at the latest

5.20 In cooperation with the property owner, KTH's climate impact (in carbon dioxide equivalents and normal year-adjusted) from energy consumption has decreased by 15% per full-time employee equivalent, full-time equivalent student and per square meter (base year 2015).

5.21 In cooperation with the property owner, KTH has increased the efficiency of premises use by 10% calculated per full-time equivalent student and full-time equivalent (measured as area per person) (base year 2020).

5.22 In cooperation with the property owner, KTH has reduced the need for supplemental heating in the form of electricity for climatization of premises (base year 2020).

Action plan for the university-wide sustainability objectives 2021-2025

The action plan describes measures, decision-makers, responsible manager in the line organisation, resources, and when the measures must be implemented at the latest and how decisions on the measures are to be communicated.

Measures

  1. In collaboration with property owners and researchers, measures are taken to reduce energy consumption through more efficient use of premises and increased digitalisation (the project "Indoor Climate as a Service").
  2. In cooperation with property owners and researchers, measures are taken at an early stage so that renewable building materials and fuels are used in new construction and conversions.
  3. For new construction and conversion, Miljöbyggnad Guld shall be a starting point and any deviations shall be justified. In cooperation with the property owners, KTH is reviewing the possibility of certifying KTH Campus Valhallavägen according to Citylab and NollCO2
  4. In cooperation with property owners, KTH develops an energy plan to reduce energy consumption.
