We have illustrated our value creation model, showing inputs, outcomes and impacts across six themes. The development of the model was informed by the International Integrated Reporting Council framework. Our most material issues are incorporated into the model. In each of the steps we touch upon our contribution to the different SDGs. We are a project-based organization. Therefore, we have set out the key elements that are relevant for each project, and how we create value along the way. Input We use the input in the execution of our strategy.
