– Our sector faces major challenges in the coming years, which will require flexibility and innovative thinking. We are entering a critical phase, but with the new board composition, we have all the prerequisites to reach out and contribute to scaling up environmental and climate efforts within urban planning, infrastructure, new construction, and existing buildings, said Lotta Werner Flyborg, CEO of SGBC.

– The transition of the construction and real estate industry is crucial for a sustainable Sweden, and we see increasing engagement among industry stakeholders. At the same time, new legislation and technology are changing the conditions for development. SGBC plays an important role as a platform for discussion, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and providing tools to support the industry’s shift. Together with the community building sector and SGBC’s members, we on the board want to contribute to accelerating the transition, said Alexandra Hagen, CEO of White Arkitekter and SGBC’s new Board Chair.

The new SGBC Board comprises:
Alexandra Hagen, White Arkitekter (Chair)
Anette Seger, Ramboll
Catharina Belfrage Sahlstrand, Handelsbanken
Johanna Skogestig, Vasakronan
Stefan Sandberg, Svenska Bostäder
Magnus Persson, Skanska
Petra Krüger, NCC Property Development
Therese Rattik, AREIM
Stefan Dahlbo, Fabege
Carina Edblad, Thomas Betong

The refreshed leadership aims to guide SGBC’s vital work promoting sustainable practices across Sweden’s built environment through cross-sector partnerships, knowledge sharing, and advocacy amid a rapidly evolving regulatory and technological landscape.
