Sustainable economy initiatives

Royal HaskoningDHV South Africa launched a podcast, Build Back Better, for engineers, enterprises, and all who imagine a South Africa free from inequality and injustice. In conversations with engineers, futurists, technologists and others, it explores how to close South Africa’s inequality gap and build a nation that is accessible, liveable, and sustainable – for everyone. By opening minds to new ideas, collaboration, and co-creation, the podcast seeks to bring an awareness and human spirit to the country’s biggest socioeconomic challenges, and shape a society that is good for people, the environment, and the economy.

In the Netherlands, we signed the Green Recovery Statement in 2020, calling for a sustainable recovery of the economy after the Covid-19 crisis. We shared information about this initiative through an interview by the Economic Board Utrecht with our Global Director, Transport & Planning, Anton van der Sanden.
