ARCADIS Renews Commitment To Water For People; Becomes Global Sponsor

ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), a leading international design, consulting, engineering and management services company announced today that it has become a global sponsor of Water For People, increasing its previous annual donation fourfold to a total of $100,000. Water For People’s mission is to help people in developing countries improve quality of life by supporting sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs.

ARCADIS has supported Water For People for many years as a regional sponsor, but its increased role as a global sponsor will allow the organization to increase their contributions helping some of the 1.8 billion people who lack access to safe drinking water and 2.5 billion who lack adequate sanitation facilities.

“Furthering our alliance with Water For People helps them bring safe drinking water and sanitation to areas in need, a cause in which ARCADIS truly believes,” said Steve Blake, CEO of ARCADIS U.S. “This would be important enough if it were just for the benefits of public health, but in many developing nations, this can also change the fundamental economic realities of their society. In some areas of the world people walk for miles carrying up to 40 pounds of water sacrificing time that could be spent on education and employment. At ARCADIS, we recognize that it we must take an active role in valuable programs like Water For People that preserve our natural resources for future generations.”

“The partnership with ARCADIS is critical to helping us provide access to clean water and sanitation for everyone where we work and ensuring that this coverage lasts forever. We are grateful for our supporters who are part of the movement to eradicate water poverty,” said Jodi Lundin, Development Executive, Water For People.

In addition to Water For People, ARCADIS has a partnership with UH-HABITAT through its Shelter program where the company sends its talented staff on missions providing knowledge and expertise to improve the quality of life in rapidly growing cities around the world.
