Certifications make sustainability performance comparable, and investors and customers expect comparable disclosures on our sustainability performance. We continue to offer our customers excellent certified projects using established certification schemes.

Environmental certifications

LEED certification

LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement. It provides a framework for healthy, efficient, carbon and cost-saving green buildings. In Central and Eastern Europe, we require that each commercial building that we build must be certified with the LEED certificate. To date, we certified 75 office projects with over 1 million square meters of leasable area.

BREEAM certification

BREEAM is the world’s leading science-based suite of validation and certification systems for sustainable built environment and it provides consistent and comparable sustainability assessment and verification across all asset types. In Skanska, we use BREEAM certification for our residential buildings.

Certifications that include social impact

WELL certification

International certificate confirming the quality of the project and its high-class performance from the perspective of the health and well-being of its users. It measures and monitors features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.

Our commercial buildings are being certified with WELL since 2018 and to date, 12 of our office projects and 5 of our workplaces haven been successfully awarded with this certification.

WELL Health-Safety Rating

The WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management is an evidence-based, third-party verified pathway for addressing acute health threats, including COVID-19 and beyond. It confirms the preparation of the building in terms of the solutions and procedures used for crisis situations – such as a pandemic.

This certification must be verified annually to confirm the building continuously provides healthy and safe environment. In Central and Eastern Europe, we require all our commercial projects to be WELL Health-Safety rated and recertified every year.
