Sustainability – Making a difference!
Medicon Village is a science park where research, innovation and societal development go hand in hand with improving people’s health and lives.
At Medicon Village, we are doing our utmost to support the transition to a more sustainable society, based on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Agenda 2030.
We are working systematically with five SDGs which we have identified as being particularly important and where we can make a positive contribution in the coming years.
Our primary starting point is Goal 3: Good health and well-being; the other four SDGs we work with include:
- 8: Decent work and economic growth
- 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- 11: Sustainable cities and communities
- 17: Partnerships for the goals
Having a non-profit foundation (Mats Paulssons Stiftelse för forskning, innovation och samhällsbyggande) as the owner of Medicon Village means that our financing is sustainable as well – any surplus from the business is invested back into academic research that contributes to people’s health and better lives.
Together with our committed members and partners, we are carrying out a series of initiatives to strengthen our sustainability profile – spanning from the implementation of next-generation energy solutions to efforts that promote climate-smart construction, attractive and flexible workplaces, and sustainable growth. Through this, we are taking the lead in driving transformation, for our own sake and for the sake of future generations.
