World Skanska to be even greener

Green projects
Skanska has announced it will tackle its own greenhouse emissions more aggressively and cut its 2015 CO2 emissions by 70 pct by 2030.

The previous target was 50 pct by 2030, but Skanska has decided that having already cut its emissions by 40 pct, it will should aim for tougher targets. The overall goal of being carbon neutral by 2045 remains.

The message in the report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) this autumn is clear. Society must make further efforts to drastically reduce CO2 emissions. Our goal-oriented initiatives in all our markets have been highly successful in our effort to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045 throughout the value chain. We are now increasing the pace by tightening our interim target. By offering climate-smart solutions, we are helping our customers meet their climate targets. The work on minimising our greenhouse gas emissions goes hand in hand with increased efficiency, better use of resources and lower costs, as well as meeting our customers’ needs
Anders Danielsson, the CEO of Skanska AB.
