Our Strategy
Sweco’s business model is decentralised and based on being close to our customers. Every customer should feel that Sweco’s consultants have an in-depth understanding of their business. Only then can we be the truly committed business partner who stands ready to create value for the customer in all facets of urban development.

Quality, Efficiency and Customer Profitability
By utilising our time and resources in the most effective way we provide our customers with both profitability and high quality. To ensure that we live up to our customers’ expectations, we measure satisfaction levels on a regular basis – and make further improvements if and wherever they are needed.

Talent and Dedication
Sweco is the sum of the expertise, experience and commitment of our employees. Every individual makes a great difference to the overall end result. Attracting, developing and retaining top talent is crucial to meeting the demands of our customers, which is why identifying talent and giving them the opportunity to succeed is a matter of the heart.


Our history is really about the future. Being prepared for society´s needs and challenges has always been the foundation of our business. From the Industrial Revolution to today´s global urbanisation trend, we know that the communities and cities of tomorrow will always be different from those of yesterday – and that it will remain our job to stay one step ahead.

Our History is Based on Engineers and Architects Working Across the Globe.

  • Since our establishment in the late 19th century, these professions have evolved and are now crucial to today´s sustainable urban development.
  • Sweco started to grow to meet customers’ needs for a wide range of specialist expertise. Since the early 2000s, Sweco has acquired nearly 100 companies.
  • Our capacity to grow through acquisition has propelled us to the leading position we hold today. Our philosophy when merging with other companies is that the sum is greater than its parts. This strategy has proved highly beneficial to our customers, colleagues and shareholders.


Sweco´s decentralised business model is a critical key to success. By having a simple, customer-focused way of working, Sweco has developed into a major international player while still maintaining local presence and expertise.

Operations are conducted in seven business areas: Sweco Sweden, Sweco Norway, Sweco Finland, Sweco Denmark, Sweco Netherlands, Sweco Western Europe and Sweco Central Europe. Sweco also has extensive project exports to the rest of the world.


Transparency and responsibility are prerequisites for Sweco’s continued success as a decentralised company that has grown faster than most.

Sweco's Business Ethics Framework
It should be easy to do business with Sweco. There isn’t any small group of executives who maintain all important customer contacts. It is, rather, our 14,500 employees in their day-to-day meetings with customers who each assume major responsibility for their specific assignments.

This creates a great deal of flexibility, but also places high demands on our working procedures.

Procedures for responsible business practices
All of Sweco’s operations are required to comply with applicable laws and regulations, just as they must comply with Sweco’s internal policies and guidelines. All employees are responsible for familiarising themselves and complying with these policies and guidelines.

Business ethics underpin Sweco’s entire operations. Executive Team meeting agendas include a mandatory item on business ethics, and CSR risks are reported on a quarterly basis to Sweco’s Board of Directors.

A business ethics compass for consultants’ daily work: Business ethics relates to how we do business, how we behave towards one another, how we manage the organisation’s resources and how we act in relation to our external environment. Having a well-articulated business ethics compass in place is essential to Sweco’s ability to perform its assignments. All Sweco employees undergo business ethics training.
