The economic environment remains challenging and we do not expect an early improvement in the trends that we see in our businesses. The acceleration of our performance improvement program and the strategic priorities announced in February are the right focus to have in these markets:
- Achieve ROI% at 14.0 percent by 2015.
- Achieve ROS% at 9.0% by 2015.
- Maintain net debt/EBITDA lower than 2.0 by 2015.
- Increase revenue from downstream eco-premium solutions to 20 percent of our revenues in 2020.
- Reduce our carbon emissions through the value chain by 25 to 30 percent per ton by 2020 (base 2012).
- Improve resource efficiency across the full value chain.
