A purpose-driven company

Ramboll has always been a company driven by a sense of purpose and a strong set of values. From the outset, our founders had a clear vision for how a responsible company should act in order to create lasting value and ensure its long-term survival.

An ethical business with a human dimension

Being witness to the destruction of the Second World War, two young engineers, Børge Johannes Rambøll and Johan Georg Hannemann felt a strong urge to help develop and re-build society. From the very beginning, they had a clear vision for how a responsible company should act and behave. They wished to ensure a long-term future for the company and the key to this was behaving decently and fairly – not just with clients but with each other. Read more about the start of Ramboll here.

“Treat all others as you wish them to treat yourself,” Børge Johannes Rambøll was fond of saying and this idea still remains one of the guiding principles of the company.

Our Mission, Our Vision and Our Values are the core beliefs and ambitions that capture the essence of being Ramboll. They define our company purpose, what we strive to achieve, how we act and how we create value for our key stakeholders.

They also guide the decisions we make every day, from how we engage with clients to the way we collaborate and behave as colleagues.

And Our Commitments are the promise we make to our clients, people, society and our company.
