Sara currently holds the position as Chief Operating Officer at BoKlok and has worked for 20 years at Skanska, among other things as Country Manager for BoKlok Sweden.
"I am very pleased to welcome Sara Erman to the new role of SVP Sustainability & Innovation. Sustainability and innovation are crucial to our success and by bringing these areas together with digitalisation, research & development, product development and business development, we are increasing our opportunities to deliver on our high ambitions, such as our climate target to be net zero carbon by 2030. Sara has deep knowledge of BoKlok through her previous roles and is a key player in our continued development as an international and leading player in sustainable and innovative construction," says Jonas Spangenberg, CEO of BoKlok.
"I look forward to the new assignment and the combination of sustainability and innovation.

For example, we test new solutions in pilot projects and selected solutions can then be implemented as standard in our new homes in all four markets. With the new organisation, we will have even greater opportunities to develop our sustainability and innovation efforts," says Sara Erman, newly appointed SVP Sustainability & Innovation at BoKlok.
