Impact through our projects

In our consulting, design and engineering services we advise our clients on the optimal solution for their challenge and the most efficient way of realising it. We do this by combining the knowledge of our employees, partners, suppliers and subconsultants with our digital tools.

On a market level, we focus where we can make a difference and can really Enhance Society Together to maximise our positive impact on the environment and society via our Global Leading Markets and the Netherlands. On a project level, we apply our Purpose Matrix to assess how we can deliver the best result for our client, the environment and society.

With our software, we capture the knowledge gained from our consulting and engineering services to optimise the operations of clients, for example in the use of energy and chemicals in water treatment or ingredients in industry.

With our technology, we offer best-in-class water treatment solutions in respect of the use and re-use of resources or becoming net-zero. We continuously invest in improving this technology, both internally (for example in the extraction of valuable bio-based resource Kaumera from the Nereda wastewater treatment process) and externally by acquiring complementary technology (for example, Helea).

Impact in our operations

In our own operations, we are reducing our carbon footprint across the board.

We support our colleagues in their own activities to make a positive impact on society. Our employees are a constant source of inspiration with their efforts to contribute to local communities. Their work is evident in global initiatives such as the World Clean-up Day and the work of the BriTE foundation, a charity fund set up by our employees.

Investing in our future, positive impact

To ensure we continue delivering our purpose, Enhancing Society Together, we must maintain and grow our position as trusted partners to our clients. This is a driver in our strategy to shift our service mix: to make the most impact, we are reshaping our services in the light of new technologies, and increasing the consultancy support we offer clients. Clients trust our ability to offer them the best advice based on our deep knowledge and innovations.

We invest in knowledge. We provide learning opportunities and knowledge trainings to our people. All our employees have the opportunity to develop their ideas in marketable solutions through the Innovation Hub. We extend our investment in knowledge through our memberships and by establishing collaborations with knowledge and research institutes.
