Sustainability and the Role of the Financial Professional

At Skanska, we pride ourselves on being a leader in green and sustainable building, from our offices to our job sites.

Helping clients to see “green” and “sustainable” as project elements that are not only attainable but essential is a core part of our values which drive us to be the best company we can.


Being green and sustainable isn’t just for the designers, engineers and builders seeking certification for a project. A critical piece of the equation lies in the initial stages of development, with the finance professionals who oversee the budgetary implications of these choices.

Finance professionals need to play an active role in the conversation to help companies remain competitive, enhance future bid opportunities, and realize stronger margins.

Our Ed Johnston, Vice President in our Civil business unit, helps our customers see those realities. Check out his piece on  Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) for more on the subject.

    Really great article! In the UK we are beginning to do a lot of work in this space for ‘Accounting for Sustainability’ and global initiatives such as the Natural Capital Protocol have been very helpful in guiding us in this new area. They are also creating a Social Capital Protocol which we also hope to be apart of, I’d highly recommend people to take a look at their work.
