Strategy

As the world around us continues to evolve and change, Saab’s mission to keep people and society safe is more important than ever. We have, since our start, been committed to help our customers strengthen their defense capabilities. But as power structures and customer needs shift, technology advances, and competition continues to emerge, we are facing new challenges every day.

Saab bases its strategy on four areas – market, portfolio, performance and innovation. This means that we stay close to our customers, we develop our portfolio continuously and we work effectively with innovation as a guiding principle in all our businesses. Sustainability is at the core of our business and affects everything we do, and our engaged employees make the company excel and are the key to our continued growth.
