A public partner for sustainability
The Dutch Government has been an influential global actor in areas concerning sustainability for many decades. It was responsible for setting up our partnership with a major player in international sustainable trade and one of our long-time clients, the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH). It has also pursued an exemplary environmental policy which has resulted in cleaner rivers, reductions in carbon emissions, reductions in waste streams, and the cleanup of contaminated soil.
The Dutch Government admits that various challenges remain for these sustainability issues. There are also serious concerns regarding climate change and the depletion of natural resources and biodiversity, both within the Netherlands and in producing countries.
We are proud to have been working with a number of Ministries on a variety of topics for several years, which have helped to establish the Netherlands’ position as a global driver in sustainability.
