Ramboll and the SDG's
Ramboll is a strong supporter of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 SDGs comprise concrete targets and indicators, that UN member states and private companies can use to frame their agendas and policies over the next 15 years. We contribute to all 17 SDGs and they form the basis for defining our future strategic direction. We have mapped which of the SDGs are focal points for each of our Markets.
Ramboll makes a significant and direct contribution to the SDGs through all our buildings services, which span from architecture, consultancy, planning and design. This range of expertise enables us to develop liveable buildings that prioritise social, environmental and economic sustainability.
