As a leading consultancy firm focusing on buildings and their surroundings, PE is at the centre of the ongoing global changes where issues concerning climate, energy supply, digitalization, the use of materials, reusage and circularity are in focus. We have a major opportunity for positive impact and our vision has been clear from the outset: renewing society through innovative and sustainable solutions.  

Innovating for the climate 
For PE, sustainability is part of our business strategy and a foundation permeating our value creation for customers, other stakeholders and society at large. The greatest sustainability challenge facing our industry is to counteract climate change. In Sweden, buildings are responsible for a fifth of the country’s climate emissions and our customers are setting ambitious targets to reduce their emissions, both overall and in specific projects. The entire industry is aiming to achieve climate neutrality by 2045, which entails considerable needs for new thinking and innovation. 

We make a difference working together 
Working together with our customers in our assignments is where we make the greatest difference. In our role as adviser and partner with appropriate knowledge, our aim is to aid customers carry through necessary transformations and strengthen their sustainability efforts, using the global Sustainable Development Goals of the UN as a starting point. PE offers senior expertise within sustainability at the strategic and operational levels. We are used to working across different disciplines and challenge ourselves and our customers to think in circular ways and find sustainable solutions. 

We practice what we preach 
Although our own negative impact is small in the greater scheme of things, we also have a responsibility to practice what we preach. We are working in the long term toward sustainability targets for our own internal operations. Among other things, we strive to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions from business trips, to increase workplace well-being and to achieve a more equal gender distribution amongst our leaders and employees.
