The purpose of the University’s Environmental Objectives and Action Plan is to promote change to ensure that the University’s day-to-day activities are conducted in line with the objectives set out in the Mission and Core Values (UFV 2013/110) and the Programme and Action Plan for Sustainable Development (UFV 2013/386). The overall purpose of the University’s environmental efforts is to contribute to the fulfilment of the 2030 Agenda.
The environmental objectives concern the following areas: travel, purchasing and reuse, and campus buildings. Under each objective there are certain actions, primarily initiated by the environmental office but conducted in cooperation with departments, divisions and other partners. These actions will be carried out during the period 2019–2021. The environmental objectives and action plan will be followed up each year in connection with the University’s environmental management report to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and the Ministry of Education and Research, as required by the Ordinance on Environmental Management in Government Agencies (2009:907). The base year for follow-up of the environmental objectives is 2018.
