Ramboll is a leading engineering, design and consultancy company. From across 200 offices we apply our engineering skills and passion to a wide range of projects around the world. We place trust in the power of design to create a better future. As a company with a strong commitment to society, Ramboll is obliged to contribute to improving the situation for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. We want to help where we can and also support non-profit organisations in relation to humanitarian aid and development projects.
The Charity Task Group – organised by employees in the UK – supports many charitable projects in the local community. We provide the framework to allow any employee to initiate and maximise their charitable giving, through contributing planning or engineering services on a pro bono basis. These are opportunities to truly employ multi-disciplinary working alongside our core values of sustainability, protection of the environment and assisting local community activities. About 20 projects are initiated each year. This year the charity projects have taken our colleagues to Bangladesh, Pretoria (South Africa), Gambia, Romania, India, as well as many more closer to home throughout the UK.
Through relationships between WORKSHOP and colleagues in our Trondheim and London offices, we supported Project Chander Nagar with sponsorship, time and expertise in 2012. Project Hariharpur in 2013 is our second collaboration with WORKSHOP and we were delighted to provide our support on a similar basis. We believe that the best contribution we can make to charitable projects is at a hands-on level, where we can use our knowledge and skills to make active contributions to the project objectives. Through continuing our association with the NTNU/AA Visiting School, Project Hariharpur offers us the opportunity to fulfil this ambition in a truly multicultural exchange.
