Swerea IVF provides research services within the sectors of materials, process, product, and production technology. The objective is to create commercial advantages and strengthen the competitiveness and innovation capacity of our members and customers. The research services include research and development, testing, pilot production, training, standardization and consulting. This climate declaration describes the emissions of greenhouse gases, expressed as CO2-equivalents, for one hour of such research services.
The implementation of the results of our research has, in general, a larger environmental impact, often positive, than the research itself. Even so, this phase is not included in the declaration as it cannot be calculated with any precision. Swerea IVF evaluates the sustainability of all research projects in order to maximize impacts of positive sustainability aspects and minimize impacts of negative sustainability aspects in the projects.
The declaration is available in English and Swedish.
