Our values

Skanska was founded on the belief that every decision we make impacts people and communities. It’s why we put humanity at the center of everything we do. It’s why we bring together different voices and points of view so that what we create makes everyone’s life better. It’s why what we build will bring value to society long after our lifetime. And it’s why we never stop thinking about reshaping the future.

Care for life – protecting people and the planet

The health and safety of people and our en­vironment lies at the very heart of what we do. In situations that are physically or psychologi­cally unsafe we refuse to be bystanders. We are changemakers and action takers. This applies to the environment and climate change too. We advocate for sustainable solutions and operate in this spirit, holding each other accountable for the legacy that we leave future generations.

Act ethically and transparently – being a role model

Each of us honors our individual responsibility to lead by example and to act with the highest de­gree of integrity and transparency. We encoura­ge different perspectives, foster a space in which people can speak freely and live by our Code of Conduct. Short cuts are unacceptable.

Be better together – teaming up

Everything we do, we do better together. We listen and learn with curiosity to strive forward as a team, generously sharing knowledge along the way to successfully replicate best practices. We champion an inclusive culture of openness, fairness, trust and respect, where all people feel a sense of belonging – regardless of who you are or where you come from. We innovate and deliver the best solutions by leveraging our own diversity together with that of our customers, partners and the communities in which we operate.

Commit to customers – having a customer-first mindset

Our customers’ success is our success. We always listen closely to understand their needs and those of their customers, so that we can provide the tools they both require to reach their goals. Together, we look ahead to create smarter and more sustainable solutions that bring their visions to life.
