"I can, I want to."

Sofie Alexandersson


Sofie Alexandersson, head of cleaning service, has never hesitated when faced with a new challenge. On the contrary. At the age of just 24, in 1994, she was given a leadership role where she had to tell the “old ladies” how to do their job. 

“I’ve always stuck my neck out. Now one of my goals is to lift the status of service and cleaning. You often hear that anyone can clean, but I know that’s not true.”

A long-time champion of sustainability, Sofie started the waste separation system at LiU, and ensures that we maintain our green certifications.

“Cleaning isn’t a highly educated profession, the Waste Group has no academic status and we don’t attract research funding. But we’re an important part of the machinery, I know that.”
