Working for tomorrow since 1999

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

The story of Futureproofed began in 1999 with ‘Umwelt’, the company started 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. Their mission: help stop climate change. They collaborated succesfully with companies and cities. This success is based on Futureproofed’s 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, 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 realise all our projects and visionary ideas, Futureproofed counts 16 employees nowadays.
