The layout of the living environment makes an important contribution to the well-being of people. Think of unimpeded mobility, a clean and safe environment, suitable housing and good healthcare. AT Osborne contributes to this with sustainable solutions. Our focus is on future-proof infrastructure, a healthy society and a sustainable living environment. Our motto is: “Urban Matters, People Matter”.

What makes us different is that we make connections, between the parties involved and between plans and practice. We are tenacious, because we know from experience that there is a solution for every problem. However far it may seem to look in daily, unruly practice. With our many talents, we are uniquely able to look from different perspectives. With more than 150 specialists, (legal) consultants and (project) managers, we work with our clients to achieve the best result.

Our mission: sustainability on equal footing with finance.

What we do: We take ESG reporting to the next level by simplifying impact tracking through live data connections, automized calculations, and real-time results.

We offer our clients a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform that simplifies and automizes corporate ESG accounting and reporting. In doing so, we capture the entire organization and supply chain, calculate impacts according to most authoritative international standards, and enable our clients to take immediate action.

Where we come from: Salacia emerged from the ambition of the founders to truly contribute to a more sustainable world. And leave their children a better world than they found it. They said goodbye to their well-paid job as a consultant: they preferred more action. Doing, instead of thinking.

At Salacia we work with an open heart and mind, and we love delivering. Reciprocity is a sine qua non for Salacia. To the world, to each other, to our clients and partners. All the time.

Building a sustainable tomorrow

The art of building is not just about the design and construction. It’s in acknowledging who we are building for. The lives we touch, the communities that are formed. Something to be remembered. Something that is here to stay. Across generations.

Because we know who we are shaping it for. And how it shapes their lives. How they rely on us. On our research, experience and experiments.

Together we set the tone, and look beyond today. By not only building on our earth, but also preserving it. By cherishing her nature and her people.

In such a way that we can say: ‘We have taken the right steps for now and the future.’

Will you start your professional career with us? In addition to a challenging job, we also give you everything you need to continue working on your professional and personal development. Either by taking courses on specific themes or by learning on the job. And when we both feel that you are ready for the next step, there are always possibilities to take on a more senior role. Do you want to learn more about all the benefits of working at BAM? We would love to tell you more!

BlueCity is a hub for the circular economy located in a former indoor tropical swimming pool in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). BlueCity hosts the Circular Challenge, which offers you the opportunity to join the circular economy. We challenge you to develop a circular business case and a tangible proof of concept within six weeks. During these six weeks, you will be guided by circular frontrunners, designers and financial experts. You will work in a small, multidisciplinary team of high potential and get the opportunity to transform a waste stream into a circular product for one of our participating companies. The most promising teams are guided towards setting up a real start-up.

As Industrial Ecology is part of CML we are closely related. Their main goal is to be the center of excellence for strategic and quantitative research and education on sustainable use and governance of natural resources and biodiversity. Besides IE, the master programme Governance of Sustainability is also part of CML. Their student association is young, but Shift will partner up where possible with our younger brother.

And many more......
