Today, an ESG-compliant office is not only a necessity due to market changes and EU requirements, but also an added value for employees. For this reason, Skanska has developed an offer to tenants consisting of services to support them in creating sustainable workplaces and non-financial reporting.
ESG+ is a package of services offered by Skanska, developed on the basis of discussions with businesspeople. Its aim is to support operations and increase the efficiency of teams, with an emphasis on environmental care and employee wellbeing. Tenants, both existing and potential, can benefit from the Swedish developer's expertise in a wide range of areas – from creating user-friendly spaces to carbon footprint issues to reporting on ESG-related elements.
– In an era of rapid market change and increasing demands for sustainability, it is no longer enough just to offer office space. At Skanska, we know that real value is added by taking a holistic approach to tenants' needs. Our ESG+ service package is not just a response to some regulation, but more importantly a tool that allows our clients to focus on what matters most to them: growing their business and looking after the health and well-being of their teams. This is the result of our many years of experience in the European, Scandinavian and US markets, which has enabled us to adapt our offer to the real needs and expectations of clients in different locations – because we understand them well. This allows us to create new quality together. Ultimately, it is an investment in a better future for all of us – says Arkadiusz Rudzki, Executive Vice President, Leasing & Sales at Skanska’s commercial development business unit in CEE.
Skanska's offer is divided into several areas. It enables to take advantage of the full potential of workplaces designed to the highest ESG standards. It includes advice on the sustainable use of office space and educational activities. For instance, it will enable tenants to learn how to save water or energy in an accessible way. It will also make it easier for them to control and optimise the costs associated with office use. A very important part of the service is also the information package provided as part of the ESG+ offer, which is a great support for non-financial reporting.
