Our business model
Befesa’s business model is based on a full-service approach to offering waste management solutions to its customers in the steel and aluminium industries.
Befesa’s focus is on securing volumes in its plants, and maintaining resilient and solid margin levels while focusing on strong cash-flow generation by managing capital expenditures, working capital and operating earnings to continue to fund its growth initiatives and to distribute dividends to its shareholders.
Befesa’s R&D strategy is designed to create value by developing sustainable improvements in the existing technologies; optimising operations and product quality; and developing new processes to achieve greater recycling efficiency, reduced costs and improved environmental conditions, such as environmental regulations and higher residue generation.
Befesa continues to execute its organic growth project pipeline and focuses on growing its core environmental service activities, which are benefiting from the positive underlying macro trends.
In striving to become the leading global recycling service provider, Befesa relies on a large team of highly qualified employees worldwide.
Financial rigor allows Befesa to grow earnings while maintaining a low leverage ratio, resulting in an attractive dividend for shareholders.
Sustainable technology improvements optimise operations and product quality, contributing to sustainable development & enhanced customer service.
Benefits to the environment
Befesa is continuously looking for new processes and services to help its customers make their businesses more sustainable. Befesa prevents the landfilling of around 1.5 million tonnes of residues each year and reduces the extraction of natural resources from the earth.
Although facing a competitive labour market, Befesa manages a stable and low turnover rate of staff.
