Responsible consumption and production

We have the ability to influence United Nations' Global Goal 12, which is about ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns. Discover how we contribute to this goal for society.

The UN Global Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, links to our sustainability focus area Green. We are engaged in several activities to help contribute to this SDG. 

Our approach

Efficient use of resources is important for Skanska to lower negative environmental impacts while lowering project costs – benefiting the environment and customers. Minimizing waste and responsible use of resources are Skanska Color Palette™ focus areas.

Examples of activities

Skanska is designing and constructing the European Spallation Source in Lund, Sweden. There are high green ambitions for this research facility, including zero waste to landfill. Achieving this target is requiring new ways of working with materials and suppliers.
