Environmental policy and quality
All our operations are carried out with a focus on sustainability, with decisions based on a systemic approach and life cycle thinking. Our own operations are permeated by efficient resource utilization, climate-smart choices and reduced emissions from our transports and journeys. Our policy emphasizes the importance of all our assignments and research to contribute to the fulfillment of both the Swedish environmental goals and the global goals for sustainable development (Agenda 2030).
Presently IVL have the following tasks:
- Contribute to sustainable societal development

Our most important environmental goals are:

We work with environmental and quality issues within the framework of an integrated business system and are certified in accordance with SS-EN ISO 14001 and 9001. Large parts of our measurement and analysis business are accredited in accordance with EN ISO / IEC 17025:2018. For the scope of the accreditation, see Swedac's accreditation register.
