The actions under consideration concerns all Group’s units, countries and activities. The goal is to reduce costs by an annual level of EUR 4 million. The savings programme will be implemented by the end of 2016, after which the full impact of the savings will be felt. In addition to reducing fixed costs, the Group is also preparing measures to further improve its delivery and supply chains in order to reduce its variable costs. Opportunities to lower costs will be sought in various cost groups. At the same time, the Group will invest resources in improving its ability to offer improved comprehensive solutions by using Martela Lifecycle model.
