In all organisations, it is possible to influence operations in a more sustainable direction. As a student you can, for example, influence how your section or association uses or avoids consumables, what food you eat and how you travel. At KTH, student groups try to change the entire university and parts of the outside world.
THS focus group for sustainability leads the THS Sustainability Council together with KTH Students for Sustainability. The council brings together associations and projects within THS that work with sustainable development. THS Sustainability has also developed THS's environmental and climate policy and is leading the implementation of this at chapter and association levels.
Current projects: THS Sustainability Council, THS Sustainability management system, chapter sustainablity policy development
