Environmental policy

SLU mission statement

Our mission statement was adopted by the SLU Board on 5 November 2020:

'SLU conducts education, research and environmental monitoring and assessment in collaboration with society at large. Through our focus on the interaction between humans, animals and ecosystems and the responsible use of natural resources, we contribute to sustainable societal development and good living conditions on our planet.'

Environmental policy

In addition, all university staff must act in accordance with the environmental policy, which was adapted in 2011:

'SLU contributes to ecologically, socially and financially sustainable development.

Environmental thinking and environmental aspects are integrated in all decision-making and are part of all activities within SLU's organisation.

The environmental work at SLU is a long-term process which builds on continual improvement and is based on the environmental regulations in force.'
