In our decentralised organisation, our employees have a high level of autonomy to run their own projects and business relationships.
A responsibility for everyone at Sweco
Together with our clients Sweco’s engineers, architects and experts work on projects that impact societies as well as people’s everyday lives.
In our decentralised organisation, our employees have a high level of autonomy to run their own projects and business relationships. With this freedom comes great responsibility for each Sweco employee to understand and live by laws, regulations and Sweco’s policies.
We only undertake projects that we regard as having been procured in a business ethical manner, respecting human rights and with zero tolerance for child labour.
We believe that our impact on society is not only achieved by the results of our projects, but also by the way we act as a business. We expect the same high standards from our business partners.
