Strategy

Metals are vital to the development of modern society. Boliden's vision is to be one of the leading companies in the industry in terms of development, productivity and responsibility.

We shall work at every stage of the value chain to ensure optimal resource and materials handling, and shall endeavour to bring about a sustainable development in terms of safety, environmental performance and business ethics while simultaneously developing our employees and the local communities in which we operate.

Boliden's strategy can be summarised in 3 points:

Develop stable and efficient operations based on strong responsibility

Increased stability and productivity in existing plants helps cut costs, increase production and reduce the risk of accidents, without the need for major investments. Eliminating bottlenecks can help free up spare capacity throughout the value chain and normally results in high levels of value creation.

Invest in competitiveness and organic growth

Boliden has, in addition to its efforts to enhance operational efficiency, invested substantial resources over the years in a range of growth projects. These investments have taken the form both of several expansion-related investments in existing mines and facilities and of an increased focus on exploration.

Acquire projects and producing operations

Boliden is constantly evaluating potential acquisition opportunities. This involves both
operational mines and new mine projects. Any potential acquisition must enable Boliden to generate additional value through its knowledge and expertise within the sphere of exploration, mining operations, concentration techniques and metallurgy.
