Most business travel involves visiting companies and their facilities and partners outside Sweden. Telephone and video-conferencing are used when possible as an alternative to business travel. AP4 recycles paper and electronic waste, and also sorts cardboard, metal, plastic, batteries, light bulbs and household waste for recycling. Where possible AP4 uses eco-labeled office supplies and recycled paper, in addition to reducing paper consumption.
