Sustainability A - Ö

Want to know more about sustainability at Liseberg? Below, you can read in greater detail about different material topics and our sustainability work


Our clothing department provides about 50 different uniforms. To reduce the environmental impact from this clothing, 98% of all workwear must have at least one eco-label. In addition, we aim to buy as little new clothing as possible and instead use what we already have. We also employ tailors whose tasks include mending damaged clothes. We impose high environmental requirements on the laundry service that washes all our workwear. Clothes we no longer need are donated as part of our charitable initiatives, and clothes that are worn out or no longer usable are donated to the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås for use in research in fields including textile recycling.


We create conditions for biodiversity in the park and at our accommodations by installing green roofs, choosing chemicals that do the least possible harm, and selecting plants and flowers that support insects at different times of the year.


Liseberg Grand Curiosa Hotel is certified according to BREEAM, with the EXCELLENT rating. This certification covers aspects including project management, building materials, energy use, water efficiency and waste management.


We use a lot of energy. Among other things, this energy is used for operating rides and attractions, heating and/or cooling our buildings, lighting and cooking. The electricity we use is 100% renewable and comes from wind power. All district heating is certified according to Bra Miljöval (Good Environmental Choice). To reduce energy use, we look for new, energy-efficient solutions and conduct energy campaigns that involve everyone at Liseberg.

Disposable items

Liseberg is constantly working to reduce the use of disposable items in favour of more sustainable materials and reusable options.

Fair trade

All our coffee is Fairtrade labelled.

Research and innovation

Liseberg wants to contribute to the development of a sustainable future and is currently involved in three research projects and collaborations: Gothenburg Green City Zone, Solutions for Climate-Smart Events and Regional Logistic Hubs.

Great Place To Work

One of Liseberg’s goals is to be one of the best workplaces in Sweden. In more concrete terms, this means offering the best possible workplace for our existing employees while being an attractive employer for future colleagues. In pursuit of this goal, Liseberg has been participating in the worldwide employee survey Great Place to Work (GPTW) since 2015.


Liseberg is a member of the event industry network Greentopia, which works to reduce the climate impact from transport, food & drink and textiles in connection with events. The goal is to make cities climate-neutral by 2030.

Sustainability ambassadors

Liseberg has a programme for sustainability ambassadors which gives employees the opportunity to learn more about our sustainability work, so that they can inform and inspire guests and colleagues about adopting more sustainable behaviours, as well as provide ideas on what Liseberg can do better.

Sustainability policy

Liseberg tackles material topics actively and from a long-term perspective. We act responsibly, based on the knowledge that Liseberg is on loan to us on behalf of future generations.

Sustainability report

Liseberg’s sustainability work is monitored and evaluated annually. Implemented changes and KPIs are summarised in a sustainability report.

It is not enough to only consider the direct negative impact of operations. The entire value chain must be taken into account. All goods and services that we buy also have both social and environmental impact. We are working to impose higher requirements, and we include sustainability requirements in all our procurements.

ISO certification

In December 2021, Liseberg became the first amusement park in the world to be certified according to ISO 20121. This standard specifies requirements for event sustainability management systems. The operations at Lisebergsbyn and Liseberg’s camping Askim Strand also gained this certification in June 2023. The certification provides proof and acknowledgement that our sustainability efforts and commitment meet ISO requirements and that an independent third party has deemed we have the appropriate work procedures and requirements in place. ISO 20121 covers all dimensions of sustainability – environmental, social and economic – and the certification is expected to contribute to making visits to the park more sustainable while furthering Liseberg’s overall development.


We aim to use chemicals that cause the least possible negative impact on health and safety as well as on the external environment. We strive to achieve sustainable chemical handling by:

  • Reducing the total quantity of chemical products.
  • Replacing the most hazardous chemicals with safer alternatives.
  • Reducing potential risks associated with our different work tasks.
  • Imposing chemical requirements in connection with purchasing and procurement.

Climate impact

Liseberg calculates the climate impact of its business annually, based on the international Greenhouse Gas Protocol. You can find out more about our climate impact here Sustainability.


Liseberg has three KRAV certified restaurants: Järnvägsrestaurangen, Skeppsmagasinet and The Green Room. The restaurants make seasonal food using as many organic and KRAV certified products as possible. Liseberg aims to have all its restaurants KRAV certified within a few years.

Chefs’ academy

After years of facing challenges to finding the right skills, Liseberg has now started a chefs’ academy. Liseberg’s trainee programme is designed to give people who enjoy cooking but lack formal training the opportunity of a paid job right from day one of training, and a recognised qualification as a chef about one year later.

Waste separation

In total, we collect and separate about 2,000 metric tons of waste per year. All separated food waste is turned into biogas and nearly all other waste goes to material recycling and energy recovery. We also strive to minimise our amounts of waste, which in turn reduces our environmental impact. As a guest, you can separate your waste at various recycling stations in the park (see the park map in the Liseberg app), and at our accommodation facilities.

LED lights

One step in reducing our energy use is to replace all our lighting with more energy-efficient alternatives. For example, 100% of the Christmas lights used during Christmas at Liseberg are LED lights.

Management system

Two key factors to consider in our sustainability efforts are our actual impact and the various requirements of our stakeholders. These factors are taken into account in our daily work and the development of our business. The tool that controls and guides these efforts is our management system, which comprises:

Sustainability policy – setting out Liseberg’s overarching focus and ambitions in material topics.

Instructions – setting out work procedures and division of responsibilities for strategic and operational sustainability efforts.

Sustainable meal options

All our restaurants have a sustainable meal option on the menu. Sustainable meals must be seasonal, made from eco-labelled produce and include a large proportion of vegetables and legumes. Food must be managed so as to minimise food waste.

MSC/ASC MSC-logo.jpg

A large proportion of the fish and shellfish we purchase are MSC or ASC certified.

Palm oil

All palm oil in the foods we use and the products we sell or give away in prize draws is RSPO certified.

Returnable bottles and cans

100% of the money redeemed from returnable bottles and cans collected in the park and at our accommodation facilities is donated to charity through one of Liseberg’s beneficiaries.


During Halloween at Liseberg Park, the park is decorated with 30,000 pumpkins. After the season ends, any pumpkins that cannot be eaten are turned into biogas at Renova’s plant in Marieholm. Liseberg’s pumpkins generate a total of about 58,000 kilowatt hours of biogas, equivalent to approximately 400 fuel refills for an average gas-powered vehicle.


Tage is the City of Gothenburg’s internal recycling website for furniture, equipment and fixtures. Liseberg uses it to donate items we no longer need to users in the City of Gothenburg, and to request things that we need. This reduces our waste and supports a circular economy.


Liseberg wants everyone to feel welcome and enjoy the best possible experience during their visit. We want the park to offer guests a wide range of attractions and excellent service before, during and after their visit. This also applies to our various accommodation facilities. Read more here.

Tripadvisor Greenleaders

Lisebergsbyn is certified to the highest total points level, PLATINA, which includes assessment of areas such as energy consumption, water efficiency, purchasing and waste management.

Social commitment

LiseberLiseberg’s heart beats for the young people of Gothenburg. That’s why we’ve primarily chosen to target our charitable initiatives to the children and young people of the city. To reach them, we collaborate with a number of local organisations. Read more here.


Guest at the park can refill their own water bottles at one of our water stations. See the park map in the Liseberg app. In this way you can help reduce the use of disposable items. To save drinking water in the city, plants in the park and hotel are largely given water from the Mölndalsån river. The river water is warmer than tap water and contains natural nutrients. These nutrients and the warmer temperature benefit the plants.

Vegetarian options

All our restaurants always have at least two vegetarian options on the menu.

Recycled energy

The energy from Loke’s oscillatory motion is recycled in the park. Liseberg was the first amusement park in the world to invest in new technology that allows energy to be recovered when Loke slows down. One ride on Loke recovers roughly the same amount of energy used for one ride on Hissningen.
