Arcadis. Improving quality of life.
In order to achieve our vision to be the leading global natural and built asset design and consultancy firm, we operate in three-year strategy cycles. Our current strategy of Sustainable growth │ Performance │ Collaboration runs from 2014-2016.
This element of our strategy is about meeting the growing client demand for more sustainable solutions – and about sustainable company development through increased organic growth. It has three elements: expanding the core, focused growth, and mergers and acquisitions.
• Expanding the core: throughout our regions by focusing on key clients at the local, national and multinational level, building on strong existing client relationships.
• Focused growth: accelerate organic growth through seven priorities; three end markets (emerging markets, big urban clients and natural resources); and four value propositions (environment and water for industry, program management, business advisory and design).
• Mergers and acquisitions: financial criteria for acquisitions remain unchanged, and we seek to add strategically aligned companies to strengthen our existing leadership positions and build differentiated capabilities to better serve our clients.
We have the ambition to be recognized as being the best in everything we do and have a culture of continuous improvement. Performance excellence touches on many aspects of our work, including the way we select and develop our client relationships, and the way we develop and maintain market-sector insights and research to hold a differentiated, competitive advantage.
Through collaboration, we will leverage our capabilities and global footprint to bring the best of Arcadis to better serve our local, national and global multinational clients.
