Environmental and quality issues

We treat environmental and quality issues within the frame of an integrated quality and environmental management system and are certificated in accordance with SS-EN ISO 14001:2015 and SS-EN ISO 9001:2015.

The environmental tasks are mainly guided by the environmental policy, the important environmental aspects, and the overall and detailed environmental goals.

At present, IVL works with the following overall environmental goals:

  • To reduce the environmental impact of staff travelling.
  • To reduce the energy use in the premises.
  • To handle waste and residue products in such a way that unnecessary environmental impact is avoided.
  • To improve the client's environmental performance aiming at a sustainable development of the society.

By fulfilling the overall and detailed environmental goals, related to the important environmental aspects, the environmental impact of our activities is gradually reduced. The most important environmental impact relates to advices to clients, which has a close connection to the business concept: To provide the clients — and thus the society — with a solid scientific, decision-making foundation for an improved environment and an increasing growth, based on research and commissions.  

Correspondingly, the quality tasks are governed by a quality policy together with the overall and detailed quality goals. The overall quality goals are presently as follows:

  • To provide services of high quality based on good support and agreed stipulations.
  • To avoid to overdraw the project budgets.
  • To remain a well-reputed, internationally established institute.
