Work of the Board

The work of the Board of Directors follows an annual agenda established in the Board's Procedural Rules. In preparation for each board meeting, the Board receives reports and documentation compiled according to established procedures.

The purpose of this is to ensure that the Board has the relevant information and documentation on which to base decisions. The Board’s work is mainly performed within the framework of formal board meetings and through meetings in the committees of the Board.

Activities in 2022

In 2022 the Board held seven meetings, including its statutory meeting. The more important issues dealt with by the Board during the year included:

  • Monitoring operations
  • Review and approval of the interim reports and year-end report
  • Strategic review of Skanska 
  • Cyber security
  • Internal control
  • Risk management
  • Ethics and compliance
  • Sustainability matters including climate and health and safety
  • The Board received regular updates on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the increase in inflation and interest rates on the Group’s business and the markets where Skanska is active
