Our people are key to our success. They are experts on understanding the specific requirements of diverse industries and project types. This depth of talent and experience across our international footprint allows NDY to undertake the most challenging projects, and to deliver successful commercial, environmental and technical outcomes.
We foster collaborative and long-term relationships with clients, and recognise that the foundation of these relationships is trust. We earn this client trust by being reliable, responsive and commercially astute with our advice.
Our successful approach is based on listening to our clients and understanding their business. We look to embrace client requirements by understanding how our advice and designs will provide best value to their projects.
Whilst our technical, documentation and consulting abilities are first class, we embrace our role as an innovator, and not a follower, of trends. We fund research and development activities in all key NDY services and support our people on the journey of continual professional development.
Our people embody the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct and look to implement best practice solutions in sustainable design, for the long-term resilience of projects.
Talented individuals look to join the NDY group because they want to be a part of a highly regarded brand, and because they want to work with the best clients on meaningful projects across international locations.
The prospect of working alongside industry thought leaders, our technical excellence, and our industry-leading approach to corporate social responsibility, makes NDY a beacon for top tier talent.
In January 2018, NDY greatly expanded its engineering and design resources by joining Tetra Tech, Inc., a global alliance offering consulting, engineering, and technical services. With a purpose of ‘Leading with Science’, and more than 16,000 associates in 400 offices around the globe, Tetra Tech enhances NDY’s delivery of smart and sustainable solutions to clients through a much larger global network of experts.

Our Ethical Statement
Norman Disney & Young has a proud tradition of upholding the highest ethical standards in the manner by which we conduct ourselves as a company. Internally, this has been captured in the six Values launched in 2011. For our clients and the broader market, we have assembled an Ethical Statement that we believe embodies the operating principles that guide us in our actions every day.
Reinforcing our Purpose, Vision and Values, NDY has crystallised its approach to Quality, Environment, Safety and Sustainability through the creation of transparent Data Privacy, IMS and Sustainability Policies.
These policies outline our objectives across these areas and our commitment to delivering against these in every aspect of our business operation and project delivery.
Organisations have an essential role to play in helping our world achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
NDY supports global progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly as these relate to our business practices and operations.
We have identified twelve of these goals that our business contributes to the most through our client projects, our operations and charitable contributions.
Material ESG Issues for our Business
In parallel with the SDG’s, NDY has determined environmental and social issues that are material to track and report performance against to ensure our continued long-term success. Our priorities are those that have the highest likelihood and consequence of impacting our business; and our ability to create value for our people, clients, and communities.
Our ESG priorities form the basis for communicating our goal of continual improvement.
We continuously engage with our stakeholders and use these views, together with research and evidence, to maintain a register of the material risks and opportunities that influence our ability to deliver on our vision and purpose. Key Performance Indicators that address material issues are included in the objectives of our CEO, Leadership Team and other relevant executives, and are directly linked to financial outcomes as part of their performance.
Client ESG Business Considerations
As a global consulting firm NDY’s project portfolio spans several industry sectors and regions, and our client ESG business considerations vary. We embrace our role in working closely with our clients to determine how their physical, technological and community assets can benefit long-term business performance.
