Review of the Year – #Ambiental2019

In December, as the year drew to a close, we reflected on some of the highlights of 2019 by sharing our favourite photographs and memories of the year on social media.

Our nominated hashtag for the campaign, #Ambiental2019 was first used by our CEO, Dr Justin Butler, who marked the end of 2018 with a post which hinted at some of the exciting product updates and enhancements customers should look out for in 2019. Of course, we’ve now got our eye on the year ahead, set to be a momentous one as we collaborate further with Royal HaskoningDHV.
