Strategy

Intelligent growth with Green and Lean.

ϲ focuses resolutely on its core competency – the construction business. This enables our business partners to benefit from our far-reaching expertise and the range we offer as a full service provider.

The transformation in our sector and our environment requires flexible action that conserves resources and focuses on customers. That is why we are targeting intelligent growth with “Green and Lean. We are particularly active in those markets where there is growing demand for holistic construction solutions. Our path is being lit by the opportunities arising from global megatrends and sustainability. We want to continue to achieve profitable growth in the coming years and are focusing on four strategic pillars.

Our ϲ – Our Home. Our mission to facilitate first-class solutions in construction and technologies. Here ϲ plans to achieve long-term growth on its markets. The goal is to secure our leading market position in the long term by strengthening our in-house construction value creation and offering holistic solutions as both a general contractor and design-build provider. ϲ is selectively expanding its existing service range through targeted acquisitions that generate value. This secures strategic advantages in a challenging environment. A selective approach to orders results in an order backlog with good profitability. And this is not just about growth. Above all, we want to be resilient and are aiming for sustainable profitability. A strong equity and liquidity position bolster us here.

 

Our Staff – Our Culture. We live our corporate culture – and everyone should sense this – whether they are staff members, partners or shareholders. Our five Principles – Reliability, Shoulder to Shoulder, Appreciation, Pioneering Spirit and Passion – tap into in-house potential and promote innovative thinking and short decision-making processes. Securing skilled workers and talent in the long term remains our priority. With our own ϲ Academy and start-up solutions in the e-learning sector, we want to build on our strengths from within our own ranks. We value diversity, equal opportunities and performance and are convinced that these are our success factors.

 

Our LEAN – Our Efficiency. The more complex our projects are, the leaner we want to be. As a technology pioneer, ϲ is increasingly using networked and innovative solutions in planning and construction. In this way, it is proactively driving the development of digital topics of the future. At the same time, it is possible to reduce the costs incurred here and thereby increase profitability.

 

Our ESG – Our Responsibility. Sustainability is an overriding aim for us along the entire construction value chain. That’s why we see it as an opportunity and not a contradiction. Our goal is to be the market leader for resource-conscious, recyclable construction. The building blocks here not only lie in areas such as energy-efficient and cost-efficient construction, but also circular economy. In order to increase synergies for climate protection across the entire Group, ϲ rolled out its Green programme in autumn 2021. In addition, we take our social and economic responsibility seriously through various initiatives and measures. Ethical, fair and transparent conduct is not only in line with the company’s principles, but also means stability in times of change and responsible corporate governance. Acting in a legally compliant and transparent manner is ϲ’s top priority. This is the only way to build trust with stakeholders and make responsible business practices a reality.

 

Green and Lean

Climate change and digitalisation are two of the most important challenges of this decade. For us as a company and for us as a society. Climate change is an existential risk, but it, together with digitalisation, also offers huge opportunities for our generation. In the EU (Green Deal), in the USA (Climate Plan), in China (14th Five-Year-Plan) and globally (Paris Agreement), an economic realignment towards ecological targets has already been laid out. And we want to proactively shape this transformation as one of Europe’s leading construction companies. Because we are building change.

ϲ has been around for more than 150 years and innovation and diversity have always been the building blocks of our success. And that will remain the case in future. We have developed the new strategy “Green and Lean” by applying our experience, the enormous knowledge base in the Group and the challenges of our time. It means the next step into the future.

What these three words “Green and Lean” – and yes, all three of them – mean in concrete terms:

  • We will change the way people build.
  • We will apply a holistic mindset and strive for a circular economy.
  • And we will be agile – with our lean management approach and in our operations with LEAN Design and Construction.
