Increasing competitiveness through sustainable transition

We help your company with resource-efficient, circular and climate-smart solutions. Together we develop strategies for your sustainability work and help you with concrete measures to reduce your environmental impact.

Identify the current status

Identifying the parts of operations and of the value chain with the greatest environmental impacts generates decision support for planning sustainability work. IVL can provide audit, measurement and analysis.

Develop and implement

The sustainability work is planned in consultation with the operation's stakeholders, and is integrated in business processes and management systems. Important areas include product design, production processes and delivery chains.

Measure and follow up

Follow-up is done by measuring, analysis and compilation. This information is used for environmental and sustainability reporting, communication and decision support.
