Sustainability work of Swedish municipalities : A study of how Swedish municipalities work with environmental performance indicators and environmental reporting. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Offentlig sektor anses inneha ett centralt ansvar för den fortsatta utvecklingen av hållbarhet då de ser till att främja och forma människors liv i samhället. Dock anses det svårt att ge en helhetsbild av hållbarhet inom kommuner eftersom begreppet är diffust och används i många olika sammanhang, i vissa fall enbart för att det förväntas användas. Lyckas inte kommuner med sin hållbarhetsutveckling kan det få stora konsekvenser för framtida generationer som inte har möjligheten till en hållbar livsstil. Denna studie undersöker Sveriges kommuner och deras arbete med mätning av miljöarbetet samt miljöredovisning. Kommunernas hållbarhetsarbete har blivit allt viktigare i takt med att människans påverkan på miljön har uppmärksammats och organisationer förväntas ta ansvar för att minska sin miljöpåverkan. 

Abstract [en]

The public sector is considered to hold a key responsibility for the further

development of sustainability as they look to advance and shape the lives of people in

society. However, it is considered difficult to give an overall picture of sustainability in

municipalities where the term is vague and used in many different contexts, in some

cases only because it is expected to be used. If municipalities are not successful in their

sustainability work it could result in serious consequences for future generations, who

will not have the possibility of a sustainable lifestyle. This study examines the

municipalities and their work with measurements for environmental performance and

sustainabillity reporting. The sustainability work of municipalities has become

increasingly important as the human impact on the environment has been observed and

organizations are expected to take responsibility for reducing their environmental

impact.
