Ramboll’s founders believed in high ethical standards and behaving responsibly towards clients, employees and society at large. This philosophy continues to be a cornerstone of how the company is run today.
 
We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint, contributing to a cohesive society with equal rights and opportunities for all, and fostering a culture of excellence, enjoyment and equal opportunities for all our employees.

Taking a leading role in sustainability

We strive to positively contribute to society by actively participating in public debates and facilitating open dialogue with global stakeholders and influencers with the power to affect the public agenda and the sustainable development of society. 
 
We are a member of the UN Global Compact and a strong supporter of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. Responsibility and sustainability are important dimensions in the way we act responsibly, manage our operations, find market opportunities, deliver projects, and provide thought leadership on sustainability.
