Green metrics

An innovative approach to our environmental performance.

Measuring green performance

The Skanska Color Palette™ was developed to measure how green our projects are. It was introduced in 2009, as our strategic framework and primary communication tool for green construction and development (green business). It tracks project performance against four areas: carbon, materials, water and energy.

At one end of the Skanska Color Palette™ are vanilla projects, which meet all the current legislation. At the other end are deep green projects, which have almost no environmental impact.

Green target

In our bid preparation, we evaluate both our carbon and water footprint. We have athe Skanska Color Palette™ deep green target reduction for project delivery. We are increasingly measuring our constructed water and carbon footprints, to measure our Journey to Deep Green.
