Vattenfall to dismiss 1,500 employees in streamlining effort

The Swedish utility plans to reduce costs by SEK 2 billion and will therefore dismiss up to 1,500 employees.

Last year, Vattenfall announced its streamlining program "Golf," focused on slashing costs by SEK 2 billion (EUR 198 million). Now, the Swedish company is ready for the next phase of the plan, announces Vattenfall in a press release.
