Listening to and acting on the views and expectations of our stakeholders is crucial to the day-to-day operations and long-term planning. As part of the regular operations we continuously solicit feedback from our stakeholders in a variety of ways – from project meetings with clients to consultations with local communities.
We perform a materiality assessment every two years, the latest conducted during 2020. Part of this process includes receiving valuable input from our stakeholders on what they consider to be the most important issues for Skanska to focus on. The importance of climate change has increased in general and mirror the debate and focus in both the society and in the industry. Anti-corruption, health and safety and climate change are clearly singled out as the most material sustainability areas to Skanska.
Human rights/Supply chain responsibility are considered of increased significance by important stakeholder groups such as customers and investors/shareholders, and worth noting is also that the customer group has ranked both biodiversity and circularity considerable higher than average.
