Legal Policies & Statements

Business Ethics

It should be easy to do business with Sweco. We do not have a small group of executives who maintain all key client contacts. Rather, it is our 17,500 employees in their day-to-day meetings with clients who each assume major responsibility for their specific assignments.

 

This creates a great deal of flexibility. It also places considerable demands on our working procedures. To ensure that Sweco operates ethically in all its markets, we have a robust set of business ethics policies and guidelines in place that apply to all employees.

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. Our Leadership Team meeting agendas include a mandatory item on business ethics. CSR risks are reported on a quarterly basis to the Sweco Board of Directors.

 

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 conduct its assignments. All Sweco colleagues undergo business ethics training.

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.
