Risk management

The continuous strengthening of risk management is a key element of Skanska's business plan for profitable growth. The aim is to identify, prevent and manage risks – not to avoid all risks.

Skanska's Management (GLT) is ultimately responsible for strategic, financial, legal and operational risks and are supported by Group functions. Responsibility for risks and opportunities is delegated throughout the line organization. Each business unit is organized to adequately manage its business specific risks and opportunities.
