Within these markets, the Group focuses on rapidly growing segments, such as technologies for energy generation from renewable resources (e.g. hydropower and biomass), as well as stainless steel or special paper grades (e.g. tissue). In terms of global regions, this means consolidating and extending the company’s current strong position in Europe and North America, as well as taking the opportunities available in the emerging growth markets, particularly in South America and Asia.
