Sammanfattning: The interest of moving towards a more circular economy has increased in many industries and businesses. Several studies have investigated the impact of different products and which processes during their life cycle have an environmental impact. But limited studies of how universities and government authorities can impact their carbon footprint have been done. The goal of this study is to map how KTH Royal Institute of Technology handles procurement, usage and disposal of personal computers and office furniture, in order to identify areas of improvement from an environmental standpoint. Since the study is focused on looking at how KTH works centrally and at one or two schools in various areas, a complete survey of KTH:s organization and management has not been made, but conclusions could still been drawn. By examining previous research, conducting interviews with employees at KTH and studying KTH:s website, we have been able to note that: increased communication, increased formalization of recurring processes and a central warehouse with an associated computer systems could increase KTH:s ability to handle personal computers and office furniture in an environmentally friendly way.
