SGU’s mission statement, vision and objectives
"We take responsibility for questions relating to bedrock, superficial deposits and groundwater."
We do so by serving as a centre for geological information and as an expert agency and through the exercise of our powers as a public authority.
"Our knowledge and information concerning geological conditions and minerals management will as a matter of course be put to use, resulting in well-founded decisions that promote economically, socially and ecologically sustainable development."
Our knowledge and information concerning the country’s geology and the management of its minerals will meet the needs of society and be objectively based, easily accessible and well known.
Our active influence will help to promote sustainable use of the country’s natural resources.
We will contribute to a high level of geoscientific knowledge in Sweden.
We will give a lead in national and international collaboration for the common good of society.
We will have clear corporate goals, competent managers and efficient operations that are continuously improved in terms of quality, health and safety at work, and impacts on the external environment.
We will offer an attractive place of work with a working climate that promotes health – characterized by equal opportunities, diversity and participation – and in which we cooperate with openness and respect for one another and for different skills, roles and tasks.
