Working for tomorrow since 1999

We care about driving cities and businesses to be more attractive and futureproofed.

The story of Futureproofed started in 1999 with the company ‘Umwelt’ created by Serge de Gheldere. In 2000 the name changed to Futureproofed and the main activity was the sales of ecodesign. This quickly moved towards consultancy and in 2007 three partners joined Serge. Our mission: help stop climate change. We collaborated succesfully with companies and cities. This success is based on our vision: “we believe that the climate change challenges bring about unprecedented opportunity for people, cities, and businesses to thrive. In fact, we believe the biggest business opportunity in a century is knocking on our door”.

In 2016, our baby FutureproofedCities was born. This online tool helps cities and teams collaborate to transform climate plans into climate action and accelerate the shift to a sustainable society.

To achieve all our projects and visionary ideas, Futureproofed counts 12 employees nowadays.
