Environmental aspects have always been dealt with sensitively within APL. All our properties, units, products and services impact on the environment in some way, and we have chosen to focus on the most important aspects.
We work towards constant improvements and a sustainable company. This means that we are constantly reviewing our processes to minimise waste of resources. The result is less environmental impact, efficient processes, better finances, a better customer offering and a contribution to society for sustainable development.
APL has joined the 17 UN Global Goals and the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable development.
Based on the owner's expectations of APL as a state-owned company, our mission, our connection to, for example, the UN Global Compact and Fossil Free Sweden, as well as our stakeholders' expectations and ambitions, APL has chosen to prioritize six of the goals:

Our goal is to reduce the overall amount of waste, including medical waste and to increase the proportion of waste being recycled. This contributes to Sweden’s environmental goals through
In this way, we also contribute to UN’s goals for sustainable consumption and production (Goal 12).
APL is one of the actors in the Fossil Free Sweden initiative, and we have taken powerful charge of our own energy consumption to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. For example, we have initiated a detailed energy mapping of the company and installed separate meters to facilitate follow-up of our energy consumption.
