Sustainability in cowi

Throughout our 90-year history, we have worked with our customers to deliver solutions with long-term societal, environmental and human interests in mind because sustainability is part of our identity and incorporated into our business model.

By combining in-depth knowledge with innovation, a holistic outlook and an understanding of the bigger perspective, we help our customers achieve the best solutions to the benefit of today’s and tomorrow’s society. 


We strive to mitigate our own impact on society by reducing our footprint and contributing to the SDGs through actively working with and implementing the universal sustainability principles and UN goals. Progress is reported in our carbon footprint report which is included in our annual reporting on sustainability progress to the UN Global Compact.

At any given time, we are involved in approximately 10,000 projects across the world and our chief potential for living the ten principles in the Global Compact lies within our service delivery and the solutions that we develop with and for our customers.
