Sustainability and responsibility are key pillars in the Group’s strategic development. We want to be known and recognised for sustainable solutions throughout the construction lifecycle.

We recognise the significant impact of construction on climate and the environment and want to promote more ambitious framework conditions for the industry, while at the same time working to limit our negative impact as much as possible.

Our sustainability strategy is based on the holistic approach of ESG (Environment-Social-Governance) and includes broad efforts in areas such as climate, environment, circular economy, employees, social conditions in the value chain and local communities, and corporate governance.

Our approach to sustainability is data-driven. Reliable data is essential for us to take action where we can make the biggest difference. All business units in the group measure and report on ESG data, which is consolidated at group level and reported in the annual sustainability report.
