The Ramboll Group turned 75 years in 2020. The long-term perspective instilled by our Foundation ownership and our legacy helped us navigate through the COVID-19 challenges.
Celebrating 75 Years of Sustainable Solutions
In October 1945, Børge Rambøll and Johan Hannemann stood on the rooftop of Danish Technical College, which later became the Technical University of Denmark, and talked about founding their own company. The two young engineers had a strong humanistic and social vision about a company that would help develop society and improve conditions for people and nature. This was the inception of Ramboll.
SDG Revenue Target
The SDG revenue has given the company a concrete framework for measuring progress towards the SDGs and has provided a yearly yardstick for how Ramboll as a company is contributing to positive sustainable change.
We manage both our business and operations’ impact, risks, opportunities, legal requirements and relevant actions regarding the environment through certification according to the ISO 14001 environmental management system. In 2020, we obtained certifications for Ramboll in Finland, Denmark and India.
