 How is the Faculty of Medicine's work with sustainable development organized?

As the Faculty of Medicine is a large faculty with a wide array of activities, the work for environmental sustainable development and social/economic sustainable development is organized in separate parts.
Med-Service, the faculty’s service organization, is responsible for environmental sustainable development, such as handling of chemicals, waste management, transport, and logistics. The work is governed by legislation and university regulations.
The more holistic work for sustainable development is led by a Vice Dean with special responsibility for sustainable development, and a coordination group for sustainable development at the faculty. The coordination group consists of the Vice Dean, an administrative coordinator, five working group leaders and a group of external expert advisors. Each one of the working group leaders are responsible of a group dealing with sustainable development perspectives on one of the five prioritized subject areas in the faculty’s Strategic Plan.
