2010 - Framework: Global Compact
Welcome to the 2010 ARCADIS Annual Review, which provides a comprehensive overview of our business, performance, and a selection of case studies highlighting some of our work in the year 2010. Despite the impact of the economic downturn and the pressure on government spending, we continued to grow our revenues and earnings, while keeping margins on target. Significantly, our revenues surpassed the 2 billion mark, exactly five years after passing the 1 billion milestone. This strong performance was the result of our strategic spread of activities, our focus on high-value added services, our successful acquisitions, our discipline with costs and above all, the commitment of our people.
