Ramboll’s Annual Report 2017 and the Corporate Responsibility Report are here. The Ramboll Group continued its positive course in 2017. Once again, we reported the best operating profit in the company’s history and an improved EBITA margin.
With a solid order book across all markets, Ramboll is well-positioned for future growth.
Ramboll’s Corporate Responsibility Report communicates our holistic performance and progress on sustainability to our stakeholders. Our 2017 Report explains our commitment to the UN Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals and report on our three overall agendas in our sustainability strategy; act responsibly, find market opportunities and inspire and advocate for sustainability. Please use the reports to proactively communicate Ramboll's commitment, progress and solutions to stakeholders and include it in relevant tenders.
2017 was a successful year for Ramboll, both strategically and operationally. As a result, all business units were profitable in 2017, and the majority delivered above plan.
We also continued to successfully turn around our business units in Middle East, India and the UK, and our Oil & Gas business unit recovered from the recent market downturn, demonstrating that the tough measures that were taken to refocus in these markets were effective.
As a result, in 2017 we delivered the highest profit in company history and have an order book that has never been stronger.
Strategically, 2017 was a strong year as we successfully launched our new ‘Winning Together’ Group Strategy, began our transition into a matrix organisational structure, and launched specialised spearhead services to help differentiate Ramboll in a globally competitive market. Together, these strategic initiatives will drive enhanced client service, cross-market collaboration, greater internationalization, and profitable growth.
