In their own words

The people involved in delivering infrastructure and community projects always talk about leaving a legacy. But what is the reality? Do our interventions really help change for the better the lives of those affected?

As a professional services company, our role is to help individuals and communities get to their destination as skilfully as we can. Only by understanding what they experience, believe and desire can we deliver the services they want.

Davide Stronati

Global Sustainability Leader

We believe that the best way to bring to life a project’s legacy of change is by asking the people affected how their lives have been altered. In their own words is a different kind of sustainability report; one where you can read first-hand accounts of how what we do is making a positive, lasting impact for individuals and communities.

We have captured the stories of people whose lives are impacted by our work across the world through honest and open interviews.

Clients and colleagues also share their views on how sustainable action is making a difference on a human level.

From helping to educate children in Nigeria and tackling visceral leishmaniasis in South Asia, to rejuvenating a seaside town in Wales and supporting farmers in Bangladesh, we are making a difference.

But don’t take our word for it. Hear from the people experiencing it by exploring the interviews in the grid below.

In Their Own Words 2019

Before the project, teachers and students were learning to read and write English only. They were not able to speak the language. Now they can apply English in their daily life.... This will make a big impact on school as well as society. We are becoming familiar with English and are already seeing the benefits.
