More life in sustainable cities

We create better living environments and we believe people will continue to shift into urban growth centers.
People want security, comfortability and ease in their everyday life.
People want to experience life that are concentrated around public transport nodes, where homes, jobs, hobbies and services connect.
This is why we come to work each day at YIT.

YIT’s new strategy

YIT’s new strategy for 2019-2021 was confirmed in September 2018. The target of YIT’s new strategy is to improve profitability and to strengthen financial stability. The company’s strategic priorities, sources of growth and structural profitability, include urban development and non-cyclical businesses.

The Board of Directors has confirmed a 12% or higher return on investment (ROCE) and a gearing ratio of 30–50% as the long-term financial targets of the company. In addition, the company’s target is to increase its dividend annually.
