At campus Ultuna, we want to reduce the negative impact on the environment caused by our travel. We are doing this by encouraging and facilitating travel to/from work by bike, and by making it possible to use a bike for work-related travel.

Uppsala municipality has initiated the project ‘Bike-friendly workplace’ in order to improve the well-being of employees and our shared environment.

At SLU, we want to contribute to reduced emissions and improved health and well-being, and have launched a bike-friendly workplace project here on campus. More information (in Swedish only) is available on the Uppsala Municipality website.

The work involved in making Campus Ultuna a bike-friendly workplace was launched in spring 2016, when a workgroup was set up. The project group consists of representatives from all the houses at campus.
