Business travel at Lund University

A large part of the university's climate-affecting emissions comes from business travel. Read more on this page about how the university works with travel regulations and goals for business trips.

Travel regulations

There are regulations that apply to all travel paid for by Lund University (for employees, external guests and students). The rules are part of Lund University's responsibility to reduce its climate impact and protect the safety of employees and the public resources. The regulations apply from 31 January 2019 and the goal is that all business trips are to be planned based on work environment and environmental considerations as well as cost efficiency. Before you book a trip, you should always consider whether the trip can be replaced with digital meetings. If the trip is necessary, it must be planned so that the negative environmental impact is limited. The trip must be approved by line manager, who is also responsible for environmental and cost considerations when choosing the mode of transport. For domestic travel, trains must primarily be selected. Flights can be considered if the total time gain is at least two hours each on the departure and return journey (including connecting transports and waiting times).

Travel by train in Europe

Train travel has significantly lower emissions of climate-affecting gases than air travel and must be chosen primarily in accordance to the travel policy. Lund University has an agreement with Togrejse, a travel agency specialising in train travel in Europe, to help staff book train travel.
