Digitalisering som verktyg för att skapa ett hållbart campus : Utforskandet av arbetsrutiner för att öka anställdas engagemang (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

There is a rapidly increasing need for companies to work sustainably. A key driver to decrease environmental impact is to raise sustainability awareness among employees. One way to increase sustainability awareness among employees may be through the use of digital tools. This study aims to explore different ways digital tools may increase environmental awareness among employees at Ericsson’s headquarters in Kista, Sweden. Interviews were conducted with experts and a brainstorming session with employees was moderated. The study resulted in a creation of three design concepts for increasing sustainability awareness among employees. The three proposed sustainable initiatives involve using digitalization: to save food waste, to create a green competition among colleagues and to form a community to connect people on Kista campus.

Abstract [sv]

Det finns ett ökat behov för företag att arbeta hållbart. En nyckelfaktor för att minska miljöpåverkan är att öka anställdas medvetenhet om hållbarhet. Ett sätt för att öka medvetenhet om hållbarhet kan vara genom nyttjandet av digitala verktyg. Den här studien utforskade olika sätt som digitala verktyg skulle kunna öka anställdas medvetenhet om miljöpåverkan. Studien utfördes med anställda på företaget Ericssons campus i Kista, Sverige. Intervjuer med experter och idégenerering med anställda utfördes. Studien resulterade i tre digitala designkoncept för att öka anställdas medvetenhet om hållbarhet. De tre koncepten nyttjade digitalisering med: minskandet av matavfall, ökandet av engagemang genom en hållbarhetstävling och ett sätt för att skapa gemenskap kring hållbarhet på Kista campus.
