Abstract [sv]

Hållbar utveckling är ett ämne som har fått stor uppmärksamhet de senaste åren. Kraven på att företag ska ta ansvar för miljö har ökat och att förmedla information om detta är något som kunderna efterfrågar allt mer. Till räkenskapsåret 2017 blev det obligatoriskt för stora företag att redovisa hållbarhet i årsredovisningen, för mindre företag finns valet att frivilligt redovisa hållbarhet. Åkeribranschen är en intressant bransch att studera då den har en stor miljöpåverkan vilket leder till syftet med uppsatsen. Syftet är att granska åkeriföretags syn på hållbarhetsredovisning jämfört med deras syn på andra miljöfrågor och regleringar. I uppsatsen används en kvalitativ metod i form av fyra semistrukturerade intervjuer och tio strukturerade telefonintervjuer.Företagen redovisar hållbarhet frivilligt genom miljörapporter till kunderna men det finns inget intresse av att göra en egen rapport i årsredovisningen. Hållbarhetsredovisning ses inte som ett problem, andra miljöfrågor som nya Euroklasser prioriteras högre i branschen. Kunder ses som den viktigaste intressenten, vilket gör att relationen till dem värderas högt.

Abstract [en]

Sustainability is a subject which has got a lot of attention during recent years. Demand for businesses to take responsibility for the environment are rising as customers want more information about how companies work with environmental sustainability. It is mandatory since the year 2017 for large companies to disclose this information but for small companies it is still optional. The transport industry has a heavy impact on the environment but is still necessary in modern society, which makes it an interesting industry to study. The purpose of the essay is to examine Swedish transport companies view on sustainability disclosure and how it compares to environmental regulations. The method used in this essay is a qualitative method with four semistructured personal interviews and ten structured telephone interviews.Key findings are that the companies that take part in this essay present sustainability to their customers through reports but not in the financial statement. Sustainability disclosure is not perceived as an issue, environmental regulations such as the new Euroclasses have higher affect on the companies. The most important stakeholders for the companies are the customers, which makes customer relationship valuable.
