Environment and Climate Action Plan 2021-2024
By 2030, Karolinska Institutet will be a groundbreaking, engaged and global university, as stated in the KI's Strategy 2030. Sustainability is a prerequisite for this work and will permeate all of the university's activities, including ensuring that the campus is environmentally and socially sustainable in the long term.
KI has undertaken to conduct climate work that is in line with the so-called 1.5-degree target. For KI, this means driving the development of knowledge about climate change and health, while at the same time minimising our own negative impact on the climate.
