The goal of fossil-free business trips achieved

In 2017, the Kalmar county museum accepted Fossilfritt Sweden's transport challenge. The goal was not to use fossil-powered cars in the service by 2022 at the latest. Now that goal has been achieved.

- Sustainability issues are important to us. Therefore, I am very happy to be able to state that we have reached an important goal and contributed in a concrete way to making a fossil-free Sweden possible, says Örjan Molander, museum director at the Kalmar county museum.

Kalmar county museum's transport changeover

The Kalmar county museum has now reduced to nearly 100 percent fossil-free and has carried out the following over a ten-year period:

  • replaced all fossil-fueled own vehicles with biogas or HVO
  • took the initiative to and contributed to the development of the dEL car pool, which offers the opportunity for fossil-free travel both in the service and privately
  • signed a new rental car agreement for fossil-free rental cars during temporary peaks
  • adopted an environmental policy for business travel.

Challenges ahead

The goal of a fossil fuel-free operation has been achieved, but the museum wants more. The goal is for the entire supply chain to be fossil fuel-free.

- We must now stick to our own work and continue working actively to include all our suppliers in the transition to fossil-free transport, says Örjan Molander.
