Environment and sustainable development at KTH

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.
