ACT on climate: Skanska climate plan for net-zero 2045

Reducing our climate impact is a responsibility as well as a business opportunity. At Skanska, we have developed a climate transition plan, ACT.  It clarifies the business potential and governance of our climate transition, while steering our path to net-zero by 2045.

Leading the way

We want to become leaders in shaping a carbon neutral future. Our climate plan is based on analysis of data, market-specific plans and targets to reduce emissions. We conduct scenario analysis and market outlooks to understand the needs of the communities and customers we serve. Consisting of three building blocks: Awareness, Customer success and Transformation, all contain crucial elements from our different markets, each connecting actions and performances on a local as well as global level.


To act as a change-maker for a climate smarter society we need to drive awareness of sustainable construction and development. Under our vast roof of competence, we know that every decision made counts. Starting from within our own organization, following up on our structures, data, and business decisions, we can lead by example. By advocating and communicating how we’re measuring our targets and financial models, we aim to spread awareness and transform the business towards a more conscious one.

Customer success

Cross-industry collaboration for sustainability innovation and success is necessary to solve the climate crisis. Low and zero carbon solutions will happen in unison with our partners and customers through the increased use of digital tools, smarter energy solutions and low-carbon offerings. We participate to develop sustainability standards for buildings and infrastructure. Third party certification and measurement are important drivers to make sustainability a part of the customer offering.


The actions to reduce carbon emissions range from the planning phase through construction to demolition. We’re constantly transforming our operations to become climate smarter. This includes the choice of materials, pursuing resource efficiency and circularity. In addition, transitioning to renewable fuels, increasing our use of electricity from renewable sources, efficient transport solutions that make greater use of electrification and automation and strategic partnership for innovation will further decrease our emissions.
