Lassila & Tikanoja’s Capital Markets Day will focus on the company’s renewed strategy 

Today, from 9:00 to 12:30 EET, Lassila & Tikanoja is organising a Capital Markets Day for investors, analysts and representatives of banks and the media. At the event, Lassila & Tikanoja’s President and CEO Eero Hautaniemi and other members of the Group Executive Board will provide up-to-date information about the company’s business operations, renewed strategy and plan for achieving the confirmed financial targets.

Growth from circular economy business

The Environmental Services and Industrial Services divisions are seeking new growth especially by investing in the circular economy of materials. Growth will be sought from business development and potential complementary acquisitions.

The Environmental Services division’s strong market position, broad customer base and significant material volumes provide a good basis for growing the materials business. As for material streams, the division will continue to focus on plastic, wood waste and metals, but opportunities related to other streams are also being explored.

In the Industrial Services division, new business opportunities are emerging around the processing and value increase of industrial flows, as well as the restoration of the built environment. Growth is also sought in the Swedish market in industrial services and material value chains.

Facility Services Finland and Facility Services Sweden will focus on improving profitability. In October 2023, Lassila & Tikanoja announced that the company’s Board of Directors had decided to evaluate the strategic alternatives for Facility Services Finland and Facility Services Sweden as part of the company’s business portfolio development. The sale of operations is one possible option.

“To slow climate change and biodiversity loss, society and companies must take circular economy action, and this provides opportunities for L&T’s business. We will focus on improving profitability and building growth in the circular economy of materials. By moving forward in the materials value chain, we can create value for both our customers and our shareholders,” says Eero Hautaniemi, President and CEO of Lassila & Tikanoja.
