The climate crisis is one of humanity’s greatest challenges, and we have a responsibility to future generations to contribute to solutions and reduce our own climate impact.

We aspire to take powerful action in the climate transition, and that is why Skanska Sweden has committed to the goal of climate neutrality by 2045 throughout our value chain. This is an important part of our promise to build a better society. The transition needs to happen rapidly, and this year, the Grand Prize for Engineering in Sustainability will focus on environmental and climate issues.


The winner of the Grand Prize for Engineering in Sustainability can be an individual engineer or a small team with a majority of engineering competence. Individuals who are passionate about the climate issue, innovative, and want to change the world we live in in a sustainable way.

Nominate individuals (or yourself) who have identified a climate challenge, small or large, and then developed a product, service, or innovation. The result has had a positive, sustainable, and direct impact on our climate. This could involve, for example:

  • A new product
  • A new way of working
  • A new type of service

Grand Prize for Engineering in Sustainability 2022 – awarded by Skanska
Winner: Elsa Westin for Gaia Gen

Jury statement:
The climate challenge is the biggest challenge of our time. We must find new solutions, but also reduce our climate impact here and now. This year’s winner does both – her innovation can globally reduce emissions that have not been sufficiently highlighted so far. When companies get accurate knowledge of the climate impact from their cloud services, they can use data-driven decisions to reduce emissions. With the increasing digitization, this becomes increasingly important, both in Sweden and globally.
