Today, we are in the midst of a transformation that is affecting the entire economy and placing high demands on us. We are ambitious not only in terms of our immediate business goals, but also in terms of the demands of future generations. That is why we have set ourselves ambitious targets in our sustainability strategy. These cover the areas of environment, social and governance (ESG).
