Green Student

If you are interested in Stockholm University´s environmental work, or want to know where to recycle you have come to the right place. The environmental website contains information about the University´s environmental work.

Stockholm University is certified according to the environmental management standards ISO 14001 and EMAS. The University´s environmental policy sets the level of ambition for the environmental work. The rate of improvement is determined by the environmental goals and the University´s  central action plan.

The University has identified ten areas with a significant environmental impact, some of wich include energy use, waste management, chemical use and business travel.

As a student, you can contribute to the environmental work by:

  • sorting your waste at one of the University´s recycling stations
  • turning off lights in empty rooms and switching off electronics devices
  • choosing to cycle or walk to and from the University
  • printing less on paper
  • using a thermos mug instead of paper cups.
