Arup’s work in the built environment leaves a significant legacy to subsequent generations. This power, to design and influence the built environment, carries with it a responsibility to do the best possible job for current and future generations.
Putting sustainability at the heart of its projects is one of the ways in which Arup exerts a positive influence on the wider world.
Investing in research and development is another: without such investment, innovation can be stifled. Without the capacity to innovate, our ability to combat the effects of climate change and other global issues would be compromised.
Corporate responsibility is not simply a policy at Arup, but a way of working. The firm’s active engagement with humanitarian and charitable causes is almost a defining feature of Arup people, and has been from the founding of the firm.
