Undertaking construction projects, Skanska also shapes the future by creating spaces that not only meet the highest ecological standards but also promote a healthy and sustainable lifestyle for future generations. The implemented projects receive independent quality certifications such as LEED, WELL, WELL Health-Safety Rating, and Building Without Barriers. These are evidence of the company's commitment to delivering the highest quality in the areas of sustainable development, health, safety, and building accessibility for all.

Care for the environment

Skanska consistently raises the bar in environmental stewardship by engaging in initiatives aimed at systematically reducing its impact on nature and climate. The company's climate goals, verified by the SBTi (Science Based Targets initiative), are grounded in science and align with the ambition of achieving the 1.5°C target outlined in the Paris Agreement. Skanska is committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2045, and by 2030, the company has pledged to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 70% within its own emissions. In June 2023, Skanska received the title of "Climate Leader in Europe" for the second consecutive year, according to the prestigious ranking by the Financial Times and Statista.

Involvement in community initiatives

Active involvement in community initiatives reflects Skanska's commitment to broad social responsibility. As a conscientious participant in the social arena, the company consistently fosters employee activism in both internal and external social initiatives. These include support for LGBTQ+ individuals and persons with disabilities, as well as efforts towards gender equality, aiming to reduce the gender pay gap and actively promoting female talent to create a more gender-balanced work environment

Ethical corporate governance

Within the corporate management structure, Skanska adheres to a "Code of Conduct" that ensures compliance with the company's values and ethical standards in its operations, including the company, its employees, and participants in its value chain. This approach incorporates principles to prevent unethical conduct, thereby maintaining high standards in all areas of operation. The company regularly conducts ethical audits, prioritizing integrity, and places significant emphasis on transparency, as evident in its nearly 25-year tradition of sustainable development reporting.
