Chalmers operates a proactive sustainability effort with extensive
investments in education and research for a sustainable future, and an active
internal environmental work. Our ambition is that Chalmers’ campuses should act
as role models with good examples, which inspire students, employees and
visitors to a sustainable lifestyle.
Thousands of students pass through Chalmers each year. The
sustainability efforts the students get to experience and be part of here are
something they can bring with them to their future workplaces, and home to
We also strive to reduce the environmental impact of our daily
activities through, for example, safe handling of chemicals, waste separation
at source and reduced car commuting to and from Chalmers.
We use an environmental management system to achieve continuous
sustainability improvements in everything from education and research to the
internal environment. As of 2012, our environmental and sustainability work is
certified according to the international standard ISO 14001 and is externally
audited by LRQA.
Chalmers has put all internal environmental work into an environmental management system built according to the ISO 14001 template and is now certified by the external auditor LRQA
