Arcadis has committed to accelerating the transition to a net zero world, in which greenhouse gas emissions no longer contribute to climate change
Designers, engineers and consultants that operate in the natural and built environment can play a key role in reducing emissions and protecting people from the worst effects of climate change.
Arcadis has extensive experience in delivering client solutions that create a more sustainable and equitable world through biodiversity, water management and conservation, decarbonisation and the energy transition.
Arcadis has introduced its Global Sustainability Advisory Services, which cater to the increased demand from governments and businesses for comprehensive sustainability strategies.
This international team, headed by seasoned industry leader Josh Nothwang, will build on best practice, and provide clients with access to a global pool of strategists, planners, designers, engineers, and consultants, who will help them realise their sustainability ambitions.
Arcadis has a clear ambition to accelerate its own transition, which is reflected in its commitment to becoming net zero by 2035.
Challenging norms and embracing innovation
Peter Oosterveer, CEO at Arcadis, said: “Taking action to address climate change is not only a moral obligation but also a clear commercial opportunity for Arcadis in developing smarter and greener solutions for our clients.
“I want us to be the leader in our sector; challenging norms, embracing innovation, collaborating with the best and pushing boundaries to solve this challenge. Last week, we announced our net zero commitments and how we will rapidly reduce our operational carbon footprint.
“Now, we are launching our global investment in Sustainability Advisory Services, which will allow us consolidate our global capabilities and maximise the impact with our clients.”
Alexis Haass, chief sustainability officer, added: “As Arcadians, we share a vision of the future, underpinned by our proud Dutch heritage and unique culture.
“With policymakers focused on ‘building back better’ and a green recovery, we have the ambition and deep industry and asset knowledge to make net zero a reality.
“Our Global Sustainability Advisory Services will allow us to bring experts from around the world to every project, no matter where they are.
“With our global business structure, we are uniquely positioned to provide the best, truly end-to-end sustainable services and solutions.”
