Arup, Sydney and Melbourne
“As a global sustainable development consultancy, our work is focused on producing safe, inclusive and resilient communities, infrastructure and cities. We recognise that sustainable development encompasses many different factors. So, our work also prioritises environmental regeneration, biodiversity, conservation of resources, stable economic growth and social value. For this reason we defaulted to Meat Free Monday for all catering in our Melbourne office since 2020, and in our Sydney office since 2021.”
Arup’s shared values, like the firm’s name, are derived from the beliefs and convictions of the founder, the engineer and philosopher Sir Ove Arup. He believed that work was only valuable when it had something higher to strive for. The firm continues to embody that idea – that their work is truly profitable when it shapes a better world.
