Climate issues drive turnover of consultancy firm Royal HaskoningDHV

Total revenues rose to 699 million euros. Excluding acquisitions of other companies, sales grew by 10 percent. In doing so, the company points to the ‘numerous projects’ for Royal HaskoningDHV related to the fight against climate change, adaptation to higher temperatures and the transition from fossil to cleaner fuels. In addition, the company received many assignments related to logistics issues.

Net profit fell to 13.7 million euros, compared to 15.2 million euros in 2021. This is partly due to higher investments in software and a one-off payment to compensate employees for the sharply increased prices.

In addition, Royal HaskoningDHV acquired a logistics and distribution consultancy. The renovation of a new office on the TU Delft campus also cost a lot of money and the company had to keep more money available for day-to-day financial obligations. This meant that the free cash flow, ie how much money actually comes in or out of a company, was 28.4 million euros negative.
