We Submit Green Tenders

In April 2010, NCC began submitting green tenders to accompany all tenders over SEK 50 million. This means that we give our customers an opportunity to make a better environmental choice – referred to as a green alternative tender.

The Green Tenders include:

  • climate declaration
  • offer of carbon offsetting
  • establishment of a green worksite

We are the first to introduce green tenders

NCC was the first in the construction and property sector to accompany all major tenders with a green alternative tender.

“We want to speed up the green transition of the construction industry by offering our customers green tenders alongside the regular tender. We hope that many of our customers will choose to invest in more eco-aware projects when they have the opportunity to choose a green alternative.”

- Göran Gerth, Senior Advisor Sustainability, NCC Construction Sweden.

Climate - neutral tenders

The green tenders are climate-neutral in that they offer customers a climate-declared project, carbon offsetting and a greener worksite.

“A great deal of development work lies behind this undertaking. Climate declarations, which have so far only been available for residential and office blocks, are now being developed for all types of projects. ”

- Göran Gerth.

NCC has also decided to always establish green worksites, with energy-efficient machinery and site offices.

The carbon offsetting is achieved largely via support for climate projects that are approved by the UN and the EU.
