• Community involvement: Shelter

World Cities Day Award

On World Cities Day 2018, Arcadis’ Shelter program received an outstanding contribution award from the Global Forum on Human Settlements. The award is based on the commitment our people have shown to sustainable development.

Over the past eight years, Arcadians from across the entire company have provided pro bono knowledge, advice and technical support, to help improve living conditions for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. More than 1000 Arcadians have participated in the Shelter program, which has conducted more than 100 missions in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Ang Yen Kooi, our Country Head for Thailand, attended the 2018 Annual Session of the Global Forum on Human Settlements and accepted the award on behalf of our company.

The Shelter program is a partnership between Arcadis and UN-Habitat and is made possible by financial support from the Lovinklaan Foundation.
