English translation:own performance/ contribution (with significant own performance)
Explanation:
Leistung does not always mean 'financial' provision, in general conractual terms it refers to 'performance'. I think what is meant here (given the sentence given for context) is that the company is going to concentrate on projects which involve less collaboration, e.g. instead of working with others to make the whole racing car they're just going to make the steering wheels.
own performance/contribution is a legit. alternative ( Hamblock/Wessels), although there may be a more idiomatic way of putting it; (e.g. "are going to concentrate more on smaller projects which rely more heavily on the company's own contribution" or something like that.
