Our mission is to offer the market high-quality, innovative, intelligent and energy-efficient products and system solutions through our three business areas.
The foundation for this is the NIBE Group’s wide-ranging capabilities in product development, manufacturing and marketing.
NIBE has a strong market position in Europe and North America in all three of the Group’s business areas. Our ambitious growth targets stem from our view that there is still great potential for both organic and acquisition-driven growth on a global scale.
The operating profit for each business area and for the Group shall be at least 10% of sales over a full business cycle.
Average year-on-year growth shall be 20%, half organic and half acquired.
Return on equity over a business cycle shall be at least 20%.
The equity/assets ratio shall not fall below 30%.
The target is for 55% of our sales to consist of LCE classified products* by the end of 2018.
The target is to reduce energy use 30% by 2020 compared with 2013 as the baseline (measured in MWh/SEK M in sales).
Our long-term goal is zero accidents, of course, even though this is difficult to achieve. The interim target is an accident frequency of fewer than six accidents per million hours worked by the end of 2020.
The long-term goal is for 100% of our production units to have certified management systems for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
In line with our operational priorities and our assessments of where we can assert influence, we have chosen to work mainly with 6 of the 17 global goals in Agenda 2030.
