Our organisation

Ramboll UK Ltd is part of the Ramboll Group, which is majority owned by The Ramboll Foundation. Foundation ownership ensures the long-term and independent development of our company, its employees and the communities we serve. We are financially transparent and our company and Foundation results are published annually. Our overall governance model follows the Nordic tradition of an independent, but well-aligned tiered structure.

Foundation ownership

The Ramboll Foundation was set up in 1972 with the purpose of establishing a self-owned firm, an enterprise that should be governed by its employees. Or to put it metaphorically, a company owned not by external financial capitalists but by the internal, intellectual capital. The Ramboll Foundation is an independent Danish enterprise foundation with philanthropic obligations. It represents the majority ownership of the Ramboll Group.

Governance principles

Specifically, the Ramboll Group structure consists of three impartial and unprejudiced governance levels:

Two-tiered board system

The Group Board of Directors and the Group Executive Board represent the two-tiered board system responsible for the operation of the business as independent bodies. The boards have different roles according to the Nordic tradition for enterprise governance and leadership:

  • The Group Board of Directors has the overall responsibility for the management of Ramboll.
  • The Group Executive Board is responsible for the daily organisation, operation and development of Ramboll.

Group leadership team

The Group Leadership Team comprises our Group Executive Board and Managing Directors of Ramboll's principal business units. The Group Leadership Team is the coordinating body of the Ramboll Group.

Corporate Management

Corporate Management comprises the leaders of the Ramboll Group’s strategic and operational functions.

Ensuring professionalism, independence and external input

The Foundation Board has decided that Trustees should serve on neither the Group Board of Directors nor the Group Executive Board. To ensure professionalism, independence and external input into Ramboll’s operation, the Group Board of Directors elected by the owners must primarily be composed of externally recruited professionals from different industries and institutions. These professionals will be selected so that they represent a proper diversity both regarding seniority and gender as well as the commercial and international nature of our business.
