Lund University has adopted the Climate framework for higher education institutions.

What is the Climate framework?

The Climate framework is a framework for climate strategies that aims for higher education institutions in Sweden to continue to contribute to combat climate change through education, research and external engagement. Concurrently, the University is to reduce its own climate impact in line with society’s commitment as expressed in national and international agreements.

What does the Climate framework means?

This means that by 2030, all the higher education institution signatories to the Climate Framework are to have implemented measures in order to be in line with the 1.5°C target. For Lund University, this means that our climate-impacting emissions are to be heavily reduced. The goal in the Sustainability Plan is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% within 2023, on average 16% per year (reference year 2018).
