Environmental and sustainability work at SLU

Last changed: 13 May 2024

Our activities affect the environment directly through our use of resources, travel, emissions etc. However, we can also influence the environment indirectly through our unique expertise in the area.

From SLU's environmental policy:

"SLU contributes to ecologically, socially and financially sustainable development. Environmental thinking and environmental aspects are integrated in all decision-making and are part of all activities within SLU's organisation. The environmental work at SLU is a long-term process which builds on continual improvement and is based on the environmental regulations in force."
