Our strategy

Our Strategy – Creating a Sustainable Future Mega trends shaping society, shifting competitive landscape

Today’s society is facing several strong mega trends:

Arcadis’ competitive landscape is rapidly changing, with altering client patterns, a rapidly increasing shift to digital, industry consolidation and a scarcity of qualified people.


Both the mega trends and the changing competitive landscape create opportunities for society, our clients & stakeholders and Arcadis. Opportunities lie in co-creating sustainable and resilient cities, build smart infrastructural solutions and the joint development of future proof industries.

Our strategy

Supported by three pillars, Arcadis’ 2018-2020 strategy, named Creating a Sustainable Future, builds on the mega trends to position us as the Design and Consultancy for Sustainable and resilient cities, smart infrastructural solutions and future-proof industries.
