All heads of department/managers are responsible for guideline compliance.
By 2025, SLU is to have reduced its total fossil fuel emissions from air travel by 60%, compared to 2019 per full-time equivalent. This could be the equivalent of a 90% reduction in domestic flights and 50% reduction in international flights.
Staff: All job categories and people who are not employed, for example those with doctoral grants, temporary employees, and scholarship holders etc. who travel on behalf of a department.
Manager: Heads of department, collaborative centre supervisors, heads of division (or equivalent) within university administration and those delegated tasks from a head of department (provided these tasks involve responsibility for business travel).
The guidelines apply to everyone travelling at SLU’s expense, both employees and non-employees, regardless of how their positions are funded. The guidelines are mandatory, except in those cases where clear exemptions apply. Other regulations may be in place for travel as part of field work or similar.
All SLU employees must be able to justify their business travel. Suitable alternatives must always be explored, for example conducting video or telephone conferences.
