The strategy of the Eiffage Group

As one of the leading European companies in construction and concessions, Eiffage has a strong ambition: to actively contribute to building a more sustainable and efficient Europe, sovereign in terms of energy and industry. Our greatest asset is the passion and commitment of our 78,200 employees, who are dedicated to supporting their clients in the ecological and digital transition every day. The more than 100,000 projects we undertake each year are tangible proof of this commitment.

Continuing to grow while staying true to who we are

Building on the reputation we have established in Europe, we aim to continue growing, while maintaining the balance between our construction and concessions businesses in Europe and worldwide. Avenues of growth include honing our expertise, making even more progress in risk prevention, keeping a tight grip of our major projects, innovating and introducing new services for our customers, seizing opportunities in areas where we are already well-known, and supporting our customers by providing them with the benefit of our expertise completing projects in international markets. We never compromise on our corporate values in our pursuit of growth. 

We must make sure our values, our strategic plan and the major challenges of our times are all perfectly aligned.

An industrial ambition with a human perspective

Leveraging the Complementarity of Our Business Segments


Eiffage's strategy is based on a balance between construction and concession activities, ensuring the Group's stability. Rooted in the heart of regions, these activities benefit from highly complementary dynamics. Construction typically involves shorter completion cycles compared to concessions, which require substantial investments that commit the Group over a longer term.

Construction: Our Historic Core Business

The construction activities engage the majority of the Group's employees. They exhibit cyclicity that is directly linked to the broader economy.

To support our growth, our ambition is to continue our acquisition strategy in our specialty areas, leveraging the Group's digitization processes and our high level of technical expertise. We also aim to develop new construction methods, particularly off-site construction, and continue to export our project-based expertise internationally to further showcase our skills.

Concessions: A Long-Term Commitment Alongside Local Communities

This very long-term activity requires enduring commitment and massive investments from the Group. Therefore, we aim to develop our concessions in the regions where we have a lasting presence through construction.

By strengthening our local presence, our concessions contribute to our long-term commitment to serving the regions and their development through a relationship of trust and partnership with public stakeholders.
