A sharp focus on anti-corruption and preventing ethical breaches ensures Skanska’s ability to do good business. A comprehensive ethical framework, solid preventive processes and employee training ensure that business is conducted in an ethical and responsible way.

Our approach

We are committed to doing business with the highest degree of integrity and transparency and we expect those we work with to share these values. Act Ethically and Transparently is one of our values, and our comprehensive Code of Conduct is key to our ability to live up to it. It stipulates how all employees should work and interact every day with colleagues, customers and other stakeholders. It covers topics ranging from anti-corruption, financial crime and discrimination, as well as environmental and safety responsibility and human rights.


Providing training in Skanska’s Code of Conduct is high priority. All new employees are required to receive training within one month of starting their employment. Refresher training is provided on a two-year rolling basis and is mandatory for all employees.
