Drawing on 30 years’ proven experience in the Arctic together and 400 experts based in 21 offices across the region, Ramboll works with customers on mining, oil & gas, transport, buildings, energy, water, waste, urban development and society-building initiatives.

Ramboll combines an integrated multi-disciplinary engineering and management service with a strong commitment to delivering environmentally and socially responsible outcomes that create enduring benefits for our customers and Arctic communities.

Meeting Arctic challenges

The proliferation and often short term nature of development initiatives is already prompting new challenges for the Arctic such as general trends towards urbanisation and a movement away from traditional occupations. This calls for holistic planning and sustainable outcomes that support society, for instance, by creating attractive places to live and lasting employment opportunities.

We act as a strategic partner for customers to address such challenges that are specific to the Arctic in three main areas:

  • Climate – We develop solutions for the transport, buildings, industry, mining and energy sectors that are resilient to Arctic’s extreme climatic conditions.

  • Environment – Ramboll helps minimise human interference with the Arctic’s sensitive natural environment by leveraging world class competences in environmental impact assessments and water and waste management.

  • Society – To navigate stringent legal requirements and ensure the rights and customs of indigenous people are protected, Ramboll’s extensive Arctic network enables effective stakeholder management and authority handling.

Breaking new ground in Greenland

Ramboll is the chosen consultant for an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in connection with the expansion of the port of Nuuk.
