Skanska: Skanska recognized as a global leader in climate change leadership

Skanska is for the first time included in the global Climate A List
compiled by the international not-for-profit organization CDP,
formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project. Skanska is in the top 9
percent of the more than 2,000 companies around the world in the
ranking.

The Climate A List is the top ranking in the scoring, which highlights
the important role of companies in achieving society's climate goals.
CDP produced this list on behalf of 827 institutional investors,
having assets of about USD 100 trillion, which want insight into how
well companies are prepared for climate change. The list is based on
corporate performance in four areas: disclosure, awareness,
management and leadership.

"We are extremely proud of this recognition, which validates our
progress on measuring and starting to reduce carbon emissions as part
of our Care for Life values. This is an important milestone on our
journey to be the leading green project developer and contractor, and
to become a low-carbon organization", says Anna Åkesson, Senior
Environmental Manager, Skanska AB.

Key Skanska efforts and projects related to reducing carbon emissions
include:

· Skanska Sweden's commitment to be carbon neutral - zero carbon
emissions - by 2050 through actual carbon reductions both in the
business unit and its supply chain.

· Developing and building Deep Green projects with near-zero
environmental impacts during construction and operation.

· Supporting supply chain partners to improve their green
performance, which helps reduce the carbon emissions of
Skanska-purchased materials and services.

starting blocks: Tracking progress on corporate climate action"
