Environmental awareness in Partnering contracts: A study on sustainable forms of contract (English)
Abstract [en]

Purpose: The construction industry uses large parts of the world's resources, of the total emissions from the sector, construction activities account for about 40 percent in 2016 and property management heating for about 40 percent. The total amount of waste increased between 2014–2016 and accounts for 31 per cent of all generated waste in Sweden. In 2016, about 50 percent of the sector's waste was recycled. The different types of contracting in the market contribute in various ways to competition, but how much do they affect the environment and the work to achieve a better and more sustainable environment. Partnering Contracts is a form of collaboration that is often used in major projects between builders and major contractors, in order to work together towards common goals.

The aim of the work is to analyze whether the partner form is a better alternative from an environmental and sustainability perspective through a comparison between the turnkey contract form and the partner form in the construction market, and is to give suggestions and measures that contribute to making the environmental and sustainability work a priority part of a partnering contract?

Method: To answer the question, interviews with people with experience of partnering contracts have been carried out. The interviewees worked at Peab and have long experience of the construction industry.

Findings: With the chosen methods, partnering contracts have been analyzed and evaluated. The results of the study have shown that partner contractors have better conditions for sustainable environmental work. The contract form is not as restrictive as the traditional contract form. Those who work with partner contractors enjoy the way they work and see that there is potential to develop the environment and sustainability work. With education, new communication tools, engaging those involved in the environment and sustainability issues with reward systems and seeing the whole of the project not just a few parts.

Implications: By analyzing how the environment and sustainability work is done on partner contracts and the traditional contract forms 2019 and then comparing it with previous environment and sustainability work. The authors have found that partnering contractors have better conditions for developing the environment and sustainability work.

Limitations: The work does not cover the situation outside Peab's project, since the study was carried out in collaboration with Peab. Investigations have not been done on other types of contracts than those mentioned in the study. This is because the data collected comes mainly from interviews and the projects Peab runs.
