Abstract [en]

The study researches how small Swedish businesses are currently working with sustainable development and the obstacles and opportunities experienced regarding environmental work. Furthermore, it determines whether the work with sustainable development within procuring processes can be standardized in a simple and effective way. The data collected through a questionnaire and interview survey shows that the majority of surveyed businesses work with environmental issues in a rather unfocused way, but show an interest of development within the area. An improvement proposal containing four operating points, is designed as a tool to get started with standardized environmental work. The proposal encourages businesses to mutually design a framework for environmental work that sets common goals and develops guidelines to be followed.

Abstract [sv]

Studien undersöker hur mindre svenska verksamheter i dagsläget arbetar med hållbar utveckling samt vilka hinder och möjligheter dessa verksamheter ser med miljöarbete. Vidare undersöks huruvida arbetet med hållbar utveckling kan standardiseras på ett enkelt och effektivt sätt inom inköpsdelen. Datat har samlats in via en enkät- och intervjuundersökning och visar att majoriteten av undersökta verksamheter arbetar med miljöfrågor på ett tämligen ofokuserat sätt men visar ett intresse för utveckling inom området. Ett förbättringsförslag i form av fyra arbetspunkter utformas som hjälpmedel för att komma igång med standardiserat miljöarbete. Förslaget innebär att verksamheter tillsammans ritar upp en ram för miljöarbete dvs sätter upp gemensamma mål och utformar riktlinjer som skall följas.
