Zaragoza, 09 Jun 2021
- Saica Group’s Strategic Plan is structured into seven major strategic priorities: from strengthening customer orientation to continuously improving processes, products and services. Other priorities include increasing vertical integration across the different business units or continuing to boost sustainable solutions that protect the environment.
- Saica Group’s Strategic Plan includes an average investment of 230 million euros per year over the next five years in state-of-the-art technologies as well as funding towards the development of sustainable growth.
- Saica Group’s Strategic Plan specially emphasizes the role of its employees, who share the same vision, values and teamwork spirit and are the key element to deploy this strategy.
Saica Group has published its “Saica 2025: Building the Future Together” digital event which outlines Saica´s strategic priorities. The Plan will serve as a reference for the company’s decision making over the next 5 years. During the event, several national and international employees came together to outline the main lines of action that Saica Group will follow in the path towards a progressively sustainable future such as the improvement of efficiency of the four business areas and the development in Europe and the United States, amongst others.
At the event, Ramón Alejandro, President of Saica Group, pointed out that the Strategic Plan “Saica 2025” emanates from a challenging situation on an economic, technologic, generational, climatic and globalized level. Ramón Alejandro added that “the 2025 Strategy of the company will serve to reinforce our value proposition for all of the stakeholders: customers, employees, shareholders and the communities we operate in, among others”.
The “Saica 2025” Strategic Plan is conceived from the necessity of maintaining profitable and sustainable growth. For that purpose, Saica Group will maintain the vertical integration of their business areas, improving their efficiency and making it into new markets, with an average yearly investment of 230M euros in state-of-the-art technologies that will nurture the plants’ cutting-edge services to ensure they maintain the highest-quality products and services.
“Saica 2025” also confirms and consolidates the company’s commitment to the environment with a strategy directly addressing the challenges raised by climate change. Some of these commitments are: to reduce Carbon footprint, to pursue Zero Waste to Landfill, or to collaborate with scientific and technologic institutions; priorities put into effect by Saica and that will continue to be a priority for the company for the following years.
The circular economy offers to Saica’s customers a competitive advantage by adding value and creating a positive impact on the environment. The technologic evolution is an essential engine for that: the digitalization of the warehouses and the fight against the planned obsolescence of the plants, along with the implementation of biomass boilers are some of the initiatives that the company has already activated.
