Government agency and business partner
SMHI is a government agency under the Ministry of the Environment. SMHI offers products and services that provide various kinds of enterprises and organisations with an important foundation for decision-making. General forecasts and weather warnings, industry-specific services, simulations and analyses, statistics, climate studies and contracted research are some examples.
SMHI conducts three different types of operation: government-funded operations, assignments from other government agencies, and business operations on a commercial basis. Although apparently different on the surface, these operations are all based on the same fundamental aim - to contribute to increased social benefit, safety and a sustainable society.
