The Climate Compensation Fund is an internal fund set up in 2011. Each year departments and staff can apply for money from the fund for measures that reduce the university's energy consumption and impact on the climate.
The fund is financed through air travel paid for by the university being levied with a climate compensation fee of 250 SEK per ton of carbon monoxide emissions.
