IVL Svenska Miljoeinstitutet AB (Sweden)
IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute is an independent, non-profit organisation, owned by a foundation jointly established by the Swedish Government and Swedish industry. IVL was established in 1966 and has since then been involved in the development of solutions to environmental problems, both at national and international level. IVL works with applied research and contract assignments for an ecologically, economically, and socially sustainable growth within the business world and society at large.
The institute comprises Sweden’s largest group of environmental experts and employs around 300 people, which makes IVL a leading institute for applied environmental research and consultancy services. IVL undertakes both research projects and contract assignments in the entire sustainability field. The activities include for example marine environmental research and aquaculture, climate issues, environmental technology, waste management, environmental monitoring and risk assessment. IVL has its own accredited laboratories for analysis.
All activities are linked to four major thematic areas: natural resources, climate and energy, resource-efficient recycling and consumption, sustainable production and environmental technology, and sustainable urban development and transport. The broad scope of IVL’s activities, combined with our multidisciplinary approach, enables IVL to offer our customers holistic solutions, as well as answers to highly specific problems. IVL has substantial experience in leading and taking part in EU-projects and is at present involved in 13 H2020–projects. IVL reported net sales of more than SEK327 million in 2017.
