The KTH Royal Institute of Technology, abbreviated KTH, is a public research university in Stockholm, Sweden. KTH contributes to sustainable development by providing educational programmes, conducting research and by interacting with the surrounding community. Through its activities, KTH also impacts the environment in practical terms through the consumption of materials and water, energy and chemicals, travel and transport and construction, and indirectly through purchasing and procurement.
Active participation in the development towards a sustainable society is part of KTH’s responsibility. This includes contributing to the shift towards sustainable technical and social systems that meet our needs, such as our needs for food and drink, warmth, housing, transportation, communication and relaxation. With around 50 research teams working within the field of the environment and sustainable development, KTH’s operations act as a driving force within this shift by improving, developing, analysing and evaluating society’s and industry’s resources.
