at the Royal Swedish Opera
»2020 was the year that marked the start of the Opera’s increased pace in the work with the global sustainability goals in Agenda 2030 and when the sustainability goals become fully integrated into our mission. We will break new ground to create sustainable productions and start collaborations to develop a sustainability work approach that enriches us, our audience and society at large - ecologically, socially and economically.«
The Opera’s values are to uphold high quality, and to be fearless, welcoming and timeless.
Translated into sustainability terms, this means:
Every year, the Opera publish a sustainability report that reports on how the company works with sustainability issues and the impact on various sustainability aspects during the past year. The entire Operan's operations are covered by the accounts, from the administration to the stage productions.

The opera's work with Agenda 2030 can be described based on two perspectives. Partly what role culture can play for sustainable development, and partly what we at Opera as a state-owned company specifically do to contribute to achieving all 17 global goals.
In order for Opera to be able to contribute in the best way to the implementation of Agenda 2030, the management adopted a three-year time perspective in 2020 in the Opera's sustainability plan, which invites follow-up and learning before the work that follows after 2023.
With this Sustainability Plan, the Opera intends to:
De sju mål/fokusområden som Operan valt att fokusera på de närmsta åren som mest prioriterade är:
NR 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
