The abbreviation IVL in IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute stems from our former company name in Swedish "
uftvårdsforskning", which means the institute for water and air research.
When the scope of the work done at IVL gradually broadened beyond water and air issues, the company name was eventually changed into IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute. IVL was kept in the new company name due to the excellent reputation IVL was associated with.
In Swedish, the company name is IVL Svenska Miljöinstitutet.
