Development strategy

In the interest of shareholders, we’ve established a clear course of action for the year ahead. It can be summarized in five key points.

 

Maintaining our financial independence

Onet’s long-term development strategy is built around a strong desire to remain independent. We believe that our company’s result will create opportunities for future growth. Financial independence gives us the freedom to take new projects while staying true to our values.

 

Consolidating our positions in France and abroad

 

In order to consolidate operations, we need to strengthen our market positions, increase volume and continue to develop sector-specific expertise and technical strengths. This may involve expanding into new areas to improve position on the value chain in certain strategic client sectors, while at the same time eetaining our core businesses.

 

Upholding the true meaning of “service”

We’ve been a service company from the very beginning. Our aim is to provide innovative solutions for clients, drawing from our experience in different sectors and our unique third-party perspective. Every day represents a new opportunity for the Onet team to provide outstanding service for our clients.

 

Striving for excellence in all of our businesses

We continue to lead the pack in every area of our operations. Client trust and satisfaction are important to us, which is why our team strives to bring value to each project we undertake.

 

Increasing our social impact

Our group already provides essential services that contribute positively to society as a whole.But we want to establish ourselves as an impact company. In other words, we’d like to be able to track and measure all of our activities in terms of their social, societal and environmental contributions.
