Sustainability at Sweco
Sustainability is business critical to Sweco
We are convinced that the greatest growth potential for the company is created by integrating the sustainability perspective into our own strategy and operations as well as into client projects.
Our greatest impact lies within our client projects
With 18,000 experts, performing more than 100,000 projects across the globe, it is in our client projects that we have the greatest opportunity to contribute to a more sustainable development. Measuring our sustainability impact in client projects is a prerequisite for delivering data-driven sustainability management to our clients and for optimising sustainability performance. To further explore how we best quantify sustainability in client projects, we have initiated several collaborations to develop measurement methods for the sustainability impact in the projects.
