Sustainability

Whether we are making communities more resilient, developing livable places or enhancing mobility, at Arcadis, we are committed to accelerating our industry’s transition to a net zero world, while improving quality of life for everyone.

It’s time

Watch this video to discover our ambition to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable world.

Our journey to net zero

Climate change is the biggest challenge facing the world. Each year, the devastating effects of the manmade climate crisis are being felt, more and more, by people all around the world. We must all do everything in our power to limit the rise in global temperatures.

At Arcadis, we recognise our responsibility to eliminate carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions in our operations. That is why we have set an ambitious target to becoming a net zero company by 2035 and we have set specific goals accomplish this over the coming years.

Our Projects

Our commitment to accelerating the transition to a net zero world is about more than just curtailing our operational emissions. Through our work with clients, we have the opportunity to maximise our impact in addressing the climate challenge. We will continue building on our strong foundations and project expertise to provide integrated sustainability services and solutions at scale. 

Moving to Sustainable recruitment

We have pledged to keep our waste production down and reduce our carbon footprint through a number of different approaches:

  • Brochures: Since 2020 we no longer print brochures. We provide students with a QR code during our events that links straight through to our digital brochure and website. 
  • Merchandise: Our merchandise has been cut down and reviewed to ensure the few items we do use are sustainable and sensibly sourced.
  • Couriers: We have cut down the need for couriers. We have established three ‘hubs’ where our employees can pick up the event kits when they are in the office. 
  • Public Transport: Where travel is necessary Arcadis strongly advocates for the use public transport or carsharing where public transport is not a viable option. 
  • Assessment & Selection: Since 2020 we conduct our assessment centres and interviews virtually.
  • Onboarding: Laptops are provided without a headset, keyboard, bag etc. Instead, these items can be requested separately to avoid the distribution of unnecessary items. Graduates and Apprentices are provided with a Welcome Pack, which includes a reusable water bottle, a desktop garden and a reusable tote bag. Our Regional Inductions and Onboarding modules are virtual.

Our Future Plans

At Arcadis, we place sustainability at the heart of everything we do. We recognise our responsibility to eliminate carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions in our operations.

That is why we have set an ambitious target to becoming a net zero company by 2035 and have set specific goals to accomplish this over the coming years.

This will be driven by Arcadians who challenge the status quo and are passionate about doing the right thing.

We are excited to be a part of the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance and how we can continue to be problem solvers for the planet.
