The built environment accounts for approximately 40 percent of all energy consumption. It presents a challenge, but also an opportunity. Skanska has developed energy efficient solutions to support customers' low-carbon agendas.

Skanska's approach to energy is focused on what we can directly control and influence. We aim to boost energy efficiency in construction operations and in the end use of buildings and infrastructure; substitute fossil fuels with renewable energy where economic conditions are favorable; and prioritize net zero primary energy buildings – buildings that produce as much energy as they consume, on average.

Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Skanska was among the first companies to sign the World Building Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Manifesto for Energy Efficiency in Buildings. In this publication Skanska, among others, presents positive results and challenges in implementing energy efficiency.
