Arcadis Consulting and Engineering has grown in the first quarter of this year. The value of orders that the company still had in store grew to a record 2.3 billion euros. This was in part due to increased investments in the energy transition in the Netherlands and the United States. The PFAS chemical problems in Belgium also present opportunities for Arcadis.
These problems arose around a plant belonging to the 3M industrial group that had been emitting very high concentrations of PFAS for years. Arcadis has experience from the United States in cleaning this substance, which hardly decomposes and is dangerous to humans and animals if concentrations are too high.
Demand for sustainable construction was also high in Australia and the United Kingdom, but Arcades in China was affected by the shutdown. In Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, Arcadis has also been able to work on building rail links and the infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Total trading volume increased 9 percent to 688 million euros. Operating profit was 84 million euros, an increase of 4 percent.
