Balco shall achieve growth of 10% per year.

Earnings per share shall grow by 20 percent per year.

Dividend policy

Balco shall distribute 30-50 percent of profits after tax, taking into consideration needs for Balco’s long-term growth and prevailing market conditions. 

Sustainability target

More than 30 percent of the group’s sales shall be within the EU taxonomy and provide at least 30 percent energy savings to our customers.
