Abstract [en]

A big part of Sweden's carbon dioxide is emitted by the construction business. Skanska is one of the biggest construction contractors in the world with an ambitious sustainability agenda.

The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate how Skanska Väg och Anläggning, region Mellansverige, distrikt Uppsala uses Skanska’s own tools to reduce their climate impact from a project. The two tools that were carefully studied were Skanska’s color palette and a module to calculate the carbon emissions from a project.

Data were collected through literature and interviews among Skanska employees. Collected data was analyzed by the author of the thesis and is presented in the last part of the report.

Employees interviewed were positive towards the use of the tools. But the way the tools presented their information could be improved. Mainly by simplifying the information so it effortless could be applied by personnel running the construction.
