Today’s and tomorrow’s leaders call for commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goals

Integrate the circular economy into educational programmes, provide unambiguous reports on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and expand the collaboration with all stakeholders concerned. These are some of the recommendations that were adopted by the ‘Transform Your World’ conference on 8 December. The conference was initiated by the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition and the Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR). They hosted the conference together with the Dutch SDG Charter.

Integrating SDGs into business operations

The eight multinationals of the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition (DSGC) – AkzoNobel, DSM, FrieslandCampina, Heineken, KLM, Philips, Shell, and Unilever – advocate the integration of the UN Sustainable Development Goals into long-term business operations. The CEOs of the DSGC and of many other Dutch companies convened at VNO-NCW in The Hague on 1 September.

The Netherlands as a circular hot spot

The Netherlands has the potential to become the circular hot spot of Europe if companies make the transition from linear to circular production, and if the government provides a vision for such a transition. This is the view of the eight multinational corporations participating in the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition (DSGC), which is supported by VNO-NCW. The DSGC publication was released on Monday, 14 December.
