As the leading company in Europe in our industry we have great opportunities, but also a responsibility, to lead the way in transforming our societies in a sustainable direction. I would also like to thank Mattias Goldmann for his contribution in setting a climate neutrality goal for Sweco’s operations but most importantly, for increasing the level of sustainability deliveries in our client projects.”
