Climate change, urbanisation, resource scarcity and habitat loss are presenting challenges to our society. We are helping to build a future worth living by supplying sustainable solutions in energy, buildings and infrastructure. We use our resources efficiently and take responsibility as an employer and business partner.

We see ourselves as a committed part of the solution as we advance towards a sustainable economy and society. We take a holistic view of sustainability management, which is an integral component of our corporate management. With our projects and solutions, we demonstrate how energy and transport infrastructures can align through the principles of environmental, social and economic sustainability. We thereby make a significant contribution to reducing carbon emissions and minimising dependence on fossil fuels.

Our activities in this area are based on the SUCCESS sustainability strategy, which is broken down into seven action areas. They embrace the full range of issues relevant to the company, including solutions that help tackle climate change, the way we use resources, and social aspects. We have defined ambitious goals for each action area, and we are developing measurable targets.
