  8. At least 95% accomplishment of the investment-program-facility launch index.
  9. Enforcement of energy efficiency by:
    • Securing in-process energy consumption at a maximum of 7.96% of total supply;
    • Cutting consumption for economic needs by 5% against FY2016 base numbers.
  10. Active staff turnover should not exceed 7%.
  11. There should be no dead stock of materials or equipment at the year-end, provided that promptness of delivery is ensured.
