And yet we believe passionately that sustainability is our way out of this vulnerable situation. It is something we have embedded in our mission statement – we strive for a world in which human activity is in harmony with the physical living environment. Our commitment aligns with the European and global objectives for 2050 and 2030 as set down in the Paris Climate Accord, the European Green Deal and the Montreal Protocol. We work tirelessly to reduce our footprint to keep up with – or rather stay one step ahead of – the Paris goals. But TAUW’s impact on sustainability is far greater through its consultancy work for clients. That is what we refer to as our handprint. TAUW is committed to supporting its public and private sector clients on their journey to 2050. It’s how we will increase our handprint.
For many clients, TAUW is a valuable partner for the redevelopment of areas and in TRIS and compliance services. Those are the times at which major investment decisions have to be taken. Naturally, those decisions must be in line with current legislation and regulations, but they should also be future proof. Through our Sustainability Program, TAUW is investing in the ability to advise our clients on a feasible and tangible route to 2050.
But we cannot do that alone. In a heated labour market where it is harder to recruit engineering professionals, we will need to find other collaborative forms and harness our network of partners and peers. So TAUW will continue to develop and adapt to help tackle the challenges of today for a greener tomorrow.
