    Abstract [en]

    Sustainability has in recent decades grown from something that few companies specializing in, to something that most large companies have as part of their strategy. Much of the research is in directed toward heavy industry while the service sector has not received the same attention. Meanwhile, companies such as technical consulting companies have a great opportunity to affect large parts of industries and the community regarding sustainability. This study aims to analyze the support from tools after implementation of a sustainability policy and have analyzed an office at ÅF AB. ÅF AB implemented a sustainability policy in 2011 and this study focuses on two levels: organizational and individual level. To answer the research question an analytical model built around the topics of sustainability, environmental management and sustainability reporting and measurement systems. The approach have been qualitative and abductive, while the data collection was triangular and consisted of four interviews, two questionnaires and participant observation. The results show that there is greater support from tools and systems at the higher levels of organizations rather than in the whole organization. None of the investigated tolls or systems does fit ÅF AB's needs in a good way, as many of the tools means a tighter control of the business than what they desire. An important conclusion is thus that ÅF AB needs to customize an own system to their needs. The selected work methods impacts in such ways that individuals carries a great responsibility in the sustainability work. Sustainability is thereby not incorporated in operations in an efficient manner. It is confirmed by the study that sustainability as a subject rarely is seen as consisting of the three pillars: environmental, economic and social, but rather tend to be oriented solely towards the environment.
