Abstract
The purpose of this work is to investigate if Miljöbyggnad certification works well for a building company in different regions of Sweden, or if a new or revised working method needs to be developed. To achieve the purpose, the author bases the study from a couple of interviews.

The conclusion of the study showed that the Miljöbyggnad certification is rarely required at the Swedish building company. The decision to use the certification is often taken together in the project between the entrepreneur and the developer. Miljöbyggnad is preferably decided in the early stages of the project from scratch. The support used is according to Swedish Green Building Council manual and clarifications. In most cases at the Swedish building company,... (More)
The purpose of this work is to investigate if Miljöbyggnad certification works well for a building company in different regions of Sweden, or if a new or revised working method needs to be developed. To achieve the purpose, the author bases the study from a couple of interviews.

The conclusion of the study showed that the Miljöbyggnad certification is rarely required at the Swedish building company. The decision to use the certification is often taken together in the project between the entrepreneur and the developer. Miljöbyggnad is preferably decided in the early stages of the project from scratch. The support used is according to Swedish Green Building Council manual and clarifications. In most cases at the Swedish building company, a coordinator from the department Hållbar affärsutveckling is working with Miljöbyggnad but it is done in different ways in the different projects. Coordinator of Hållbar affärsutveckling uses SGBC regulations with own developed documents. There is no work on various indicators clashes at the moment. A proposal developed shows that Energy, Solar Load and Daylight should be the key indicators that control the working process with Miljöbyggnad.

Certification work differs between the building company regions depending on which background coordinators have. A more common approach should be developed and are requested by several Project Managers. Hållbar affärsutveckling should internally develop such approaches so that the quality of certification evidence is the same. Follow-up after a project is in many cases inadequate and should be made more widely. Through a simple evaluation, other projects within the building company can take advantage out of completed projects. Feedback of experience should get better. In the majority of the Swedish building company projects Miljöbyggnad is an ambition which means that penalty doesn’t exist. The investigation has shown that the economy follow-up regarding Miljöbyggnad are not enough detailed and the costs are in many cases uncertain and estimated. It’s not clarified how much the additional cost will be for the Miljöbyggnad in the building company projects. Evaluation is needed to a greater extent also with regard to the economy.

Suggestions for improvement are presented in the thesis. (Less)
