Our Commitment

Arcadis is committed to improving quality of life for all generations by maximizing social, economic and environmental value.

Sustainability is also one of our core values. Equally important is the attitude of our people as reflected in our passion: to improve quality of life and be recognized as the best.

Sustainability thinking helps create value for all our stakeholders. Our approach to achieving this is reflected in our value creation model.

Materiality – Research with clients, our senior management, investors and non-governmental organizations, and a subsequent stakeholder dialogue session, identified the following areas as the issues of greatest concern to our business. 

The material issues on which we will focus in 2016 are:

  • Innovation: The exploration of new sustainable solutions, as well as the application of better solutions that meet new environmental or social requirements, needs or existing market needs.
  • Sustainable Outcomes: Improving quality of life through the projects Arcadis performs on behalf of clients, whilst also creating long-term value for clients as a result of these projects. This includes improving quality of life through the environmental components and designs of projects that Arcadis performs on behalf of clients, whilst also creating long-term value for clients as a result of these projects.
  • Climate Change: A strategy to deal with how the changing climate will impact our business, e.g. demands for new services (opportunities), risk mitigation and business continuity.
