Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Business ethics and corporate social responsibility are at the heart of everything Sweco does. Sweco is committed to social responsibility and has a zero tolerance of slavery and human trafficking.
Sweco’s Corporate Social Responsibility Policy and Code of Conduct apply to all companies in the Group, the Board of Directors, and all employees. They promote the equal rights and opportunities of employees in the workplace and guide us in maintaining the trust and credibility of our stakeholders. We require all employees to confirm that they comply with these policies in all respects.
Violations of human rights are never permitted. Sweco does not tolerate child labour in any part of its own operations, nor in the operations of any business partner. (This includes key members of our supply chain/sub consultants). Sweco does not permit illegal or forced labour.
Recruitment Fraud Statement
Sweco never asks candidates for money as part of its recruitment process. Sweco advertises all roles via recognised advertisement boards, LinkedIn, and CV databases where candidates will have previously uploaded their contact details. Sweco will only contact candidates who have directly or indirectly expressed an interest in an advertised position.
We recommend that you avoid fraudulent communications purporting to be on behalf of companies within the Sweco Group. Recent incidents have been reported involving individuals claiming to work for Sweco’s HR team and recruiting on behalf of Sweco. Targeted individuals were told, for example, that their qualifications were suitable for remote work for Sweco. In addition, communications solicit the transfer/payment of modest sums of money to pay for training with the promise of reimbursement within a few days.
Please note that such communications are fraudulent. They do not originate from Sweco or any Sweco-associated companies. Sweco recommends that you do not respond to unsolicited job offers. Never disclose personal or financial details to anyone you do not know.

Taking responsibility for paying tax is one way for Sweco to contribute to a sustainable society. Sweco Group’s vision is to become Europe’s most respected knowledge company in the fields of consulting engineering, environmental technology, and architecture.
