Our vision remains the same: to become a leading multinational integrated construction and real estate services provider. Our “Way Forward” initiative, announced in October, is designed to intensify and accelerate implementation of our strategy: securing profitable growth by concentrating on our core business. We will focus on integrated construction and real estate services in Switzerland and Germany. In other markets we only plan to continue offering tunnelling and related infrastructure projects. You can read more about this here. These measures, which we have been implement ingsince the autumn, have presented many of us with additional challenging tasks – and all of this on top of the intense months we have had dealing with COVID-19. It’s good that we will all soon be getting a well-deserved break during the holiday season.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all sincerely, also on behalf of the entire Implenia Executive Committee, for your dedication and for the work you do every day on our sites and in our offices. The efforts that you have made during this challenging year go beyond the call of duty. I would like to wish you and your families a happy and restful holiday period. Stay healthy and have a Happy New Year. I look forward to continuing working with you in 2021 on achieving our vision.
