SDG 13: Climate Action

SDG 13 - Climate action

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. At Royal HaskoningDHV, we have a deeply-rooted understanding of the physical and social environment as well as risk and resilience measures. In our everyday work we transform this knowledge to create efficient designs that minimise negative environmental impacts and maximise positive social impacts and society’s resilience to climate change. We create resilient strategies and systems for communities, businesses, infrastructure and the financial sector to reduce the impact of extreme weather, natural disasters and climate change before events occur. Our integrated system approach combines structural and organisational measures with social inclusiveness, and we empower people through local stakeholder engagement and community involvement.
