ISO 9001

Continuous improvement and optimal control and monitoring of the quality of our work is of major importance. The PDCA cycle (plan-do-check-act) is the core of our quality control processes. Not only for our clients, but also for ourselves because we simply want to provide excellent results.

The quality of our staff is decisive when it comes to the quality of our research and consultancy. We therefore provide training, further education and internal coaching for all employees. Learning from each other is always the most effective and inspiring strategy.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

We are concerned about social issues and about taking responsibility for the care of our planet.

We therefore support the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact (www.unglobalcompact.org) that focus on human rights, fair labour, a better environment and anti-corruption. As a member of the Global Compact, we contribute to the implementation of these principles.

As experts and advisors, we contribute to a better environment and reduced impact on the environment. We do this by reducing our CO2 emissions according to the CO2 performance ladder (www.skao.nl) and we minimise our paper consumption. Most importantly, we always consider the impact to the environment in our advisory services.

Support and guidance of students is also very important to us. It gives them the opportunity to become acquainted with the profession and the business world. We offer students a graduation placement, support study associations and supervise groups of students during their internship abroad.

HKV is a member of the following networks in the water sector.
