Internal Environmental Audit weeks 43-44

The annual internal environmental audit is carried out during v.43 and v.45. Audits are carried out to confirm that the operations live up to the requirements of the environmental management standard ISO 14001: 2015 and Ordinance (2009: 907) environmental management in government agencies. The audit aims to identify areas for improvement.

The focus areas for this year's internal environmental audit are:
  • Sustainability requirements in the procurement of consulting services regarding support for the implementation of a course.
  • Operating systems to support the work of following up KTH's environmental and climate goals: System Support Wisum (IT products), System Support Wisum and Klara (Chemicals), System Support Edge (Research), System Support Pythagoras (Property).
  • Vice Presidents' support in connection with the follow-up of KTH's sustainability objectives and climate objectives.
