Overall environmental audits and reports

Continuous improvement is a key concept in the environmental management work. KTH must demonstrate that improvements are achieved through systematic work with the environmental management system. Each year environmental audits are conducted to determine that requirements are met and work to meet the overall objectives is progressing.
