The Climate Framework
Higher education institutions (HEIs) have a central role in efforts to combat climate change. We have an important task to contribute through our teaching and research, but we also need to contribute by reducing the impact of our own operations.

37 Swedish universities and colleges have created a combined climate framework to serve as the basis for individual climate strategies. This Climate Framework has been produced on the initiative of Higher
Education Institutions (HEIs) with the ambition of clearly contributing to climate change adaptation in line with society’s national and international commitments. By 2030, all the HEI signatories of this Climate Framework will have implemented measures in order to be in line with the Paris Agreement's 1.5°C target.
