Disaster Reduction Goal

Other activities

Our value set inherently supports the Hyogo Protocol because we focus our area of 4 Global Challenges - Industry, Transport, Urban, and Water - all of which are essential to ensure resilience of cities.

World Bank research shows that 90% of urban disasters are water related and as such our leading position as a water consultant puts in an ideal position to address this challenge.
