Bridging science and society
To solve the environmental challenges our world is facing we need more than environmental research. We need collaborative efforts, an interdisciplinary approach and real-world applications.

Evidence-based and interdisciplinary science
IVL combines applied research and development with close collaboration between industry and the public sphere. IVL's consultancy is evidence-based, and our research is characterized by interdisciplinary science and system thinking.

Founded by the state and the business sector
IVL was jointly founded in 1966 by the Swedish state and national business interests to carry out research on industrial air and water issues. Today IVL is an environmental agency concentrating on much more. Common to all assignments is the interaction between ecological, economic and social perspectives.
