BRUSSELS, 13 APRIL 2022 - What a terrible year 2021 was. High raw material prices, high transport prices, a shortage of materials, little solar radiation, low consumer confidence, unstable regulations. It was a perfect storm. Turnover figures in the sector plummeted by 60 to 80%. We felt it, the difficult context of 2021.
And yet it turned out to be a year of growth and profit again. Our turnover rose by almost 17%. We never built more projects. We strengthened our capital buffers for the first time since our founding. We kept hiring. We continued to grow. And we continue to have the very best employees and customers in the world.
