AP4's direct environmental impact

AP4’s direct impact on the environment, with around 50 employees in a Swedish office environment, is relatively low. Business travel, electricity consumption (heating and cooling of offices) and waste management have the greatest impact on the environment.

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.
