Bra resultat! Extern miljörevisionen

Under april genomfördes den årliga extern miljörevisionen. I år var det också en revision för omcertifiering, som sker vart tredje år.

Resultatet är väldigt bra! KTH är fortsätt ISO 14001 certifierat och revisorerna var imponerade av den verksamhet som KTH bedriver och hur vi arbetar för en hållbar samhällsutveckling. Vid slutmötet lyfte revisorerna fram två mindre avvikelser, positiva iakttagelser och några förbättringsområden att arbeta vidare med.
