Sustainability objectives
ÅF works resolutely to become a more sustainable company. Three overarching focus areas form the basis of the company’s sustainability work.

  • Sustainable solutions
  • Responsible business transactions
  • Attractive employer

The goals for these areas extend until 2020.

Strategy

ÅF’s four divisions work together to create the best solutions and strongest teams for each and every client. The key elements of the ONE ÅF strategy are:

ÅF’s business activities are conducted as decentralised operations under one and the same brand and with common processes and systems. A strong corporate culture with shared values ensures that we work together and exploit all of the experience that is represented within ÅF.

ÅF has access to more than 100 million hours of engineer­ing experience – know-how and solutions that are documented in “ONE”, our unique knowledge database that is available to every ÅF employee. This means that:

  • Every ÅF employee can make use of the full, combined strength of ÅF
  • ÅF is ready to tackle every technical challenge, now and in the future

Number one or two in every market
ÅF aims to be the number one or two as measured by sales in the segments in which we operate.

Both organic growth and growth through acquisitions
Our rate of growth will remain high. ÅF will grow both organ­ically and through acquisitions. Half of this growth is to come from acquisitions, which must strengthen the company in our main sectors – energy, industry and infrastructure – and fit well with ÅF in terms of corporate culture. Above all, ÅF’s contin­ued growth is to occur in its domestic markets and the global energy market.
