STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION IN 2017

Kesko’s strategic business areas are the grocery trade, building and technical trade, and car trade. These are all areas where we have strong expertise and market positions; they also offer good potential for profitable growth in the long term.

Net sales grew in all divisions and profitability improved compared to the year before. The implementation of our strategy towards becoming a more focused K Group proceeded determinately through divestments.

SUSTAINABILITY

We were the first Finnish company to set Science Based Targets for reducing emissions from our operations. To achieve the targets, we will increase the use of renewable energy and improve our energy efficiency.
