The BrITE Foundation is a charitable fund set up and run by employees of Royal HaskoningDHV.
As a collective of engineers, consultants and project managers, Royal HaskoningDHV has a deeply rooted understanding of the physical and social environment. In our everyday work we digitally transform this ingrained knowledge to create efficient designs that minimize negative environmental impacts, maximize environmental enhancement opportunities and positive social impacts and ultimately society’s resilience to climate change.
In addition to the work on projects and serving clients, across the world, Royal HaskoningDHV employees contribute time, expertise and money to enhance societies. Supported by the BrITE Foundation, they deliver small-scale charity projects for people and planet, close to our hearts and to our fields of expertise. The BrITE Foundation enables employees to deliver on our promise to ‘Enhance Society Together’. This is a commitment we choose to make; not because we have to, but because we care about shaping our environment so every member of society can lead a fulfilling life.
Flip Dötsch, Corporate Director Communications & Brand, and Chairman of the BrITE Foundation: "Enhancing Society Together is not just a slogan, it’s our end goal. People are key in driving positive change and what is more exemplary and inspirational then employees who proactively initiative and activate support for societies and people in need. All of us should be able to contribute something small, so together we can make a big difference in our commitment to enhance society."
The Foundation is a great example of the intrinsic motivation of employees to have a positive impact on the world and help those who need it most. Employees donate a proportion of their salary to the fund for charity projects proposed by employees. The Foundation generates considerable enthusiasm and involvement and enables staff to focus their efforts collectively to make a difference.
