Steps to net-zero 2023

To achieve net-zero by 2045,
Skanska is rethinking the way we build.

The construction industry accounts for around 40 per cent of all energy-related carbon emissions, globally. By working together, we can all be part of the solution to tackle climate change. 

To achieve our target of net-zero emissions by 2045, we are rethinking the way we build, increasing our use of renewable energy, maximising productivity, minimising waste and bringing innovative materials into use. 

In March 2023, we hosted a special webinar to share our net-zero progress and launch a comprehensive new suite of carbon reduction sub targets.

We were delighted to be joined by nearly 1,000 attendees, including customers, suppliers, industry stakeholders and Skanska colleagues.

During the one-hour session, we shared examples of our industry-leading carbon reduction solutions and looked at how we’re working together with our customers and supply chain to meet their own carbon reduction targets. We also discussed some of the biggest decarbonisation challenges facing the industry around concrete, steel and transportation (including plant and equipment).

Feedback from attendees 

"It is so great to see the depth of examples Skanska is delivering. It's easy to pick one or two items and 'greenwash it' but sustained examples are more difficult."

"A well-structured and articulate webinar. The team should be congratulated for their trailblazing approach and strategy to carbon reduction."
