Environment and sustainable development
The environmental work of KTH schools and University Administration is managed by environmental representatives together with local management. Environmental targets and programs are set at all schools/UA based on the environmental objectives. Local procedures are established in areas which require more detailed control.
KTH contributes to sustainable development by providing educational programmes, conducting research and by interacting with the surrounding community. Through its activities, KTH also impacts the environment in practical terms through the consumption of materials and water, energy and chemicals, travel and transport and construction, and indirectly through purchasing and procurement.
