The work we do at Skanska makes a clear contribution to society; the environment around us and the communities where we work. Whether we’re building schools to provide inspiring spaces to learn, roads to connect communities or looking after hospitals to create the perfect environment for patients – it all contributes to our purpose – to build for a better society.
By giving our time and resources to the local communities where we work and by employing local suppliers on our contracts we leave a lasting legacy. An example of this is our Lend a Hand Days, which we use to help improve the communities where we work by helping charities and organisations like Secret World Wildlife Rescue to achieve its goals. Our teams working across the south west have used this initiative to help Skanska develop a strong relationship with the Secret World Wildlife Rescue, where we have helped to improve and repair its facilities.
