With our creative and innovative projects we offer solutions for a better future both for people and the environment. Through cooperation with individuals, businesses and governments we aim to make a difference in the fields of renewable energy, sustainable mobility and healthy food. We operate primarily in the Netherlands, but where relevant, we operate on a European and global scale as well.
We achieve our goal through various projects, such as Cleaner Car Contracts (cleaner lease fleets throughout Europe), Zeekracht (wind energy at sea), Het Nieuwe Werken doe je zelf (implementing a new way of working involving less commuting), Coolproducts (lobbying in Brussels for energy efficient appliances) and Nacht van de Nacht (reducing light pollution to enjoy the beauty of the night).
Our approach is solution-oriented and innovative. We facilitate comprehensive change by bringing together people, knowledge and ideas. We form partnerships with sustainable businesses and organisations to expand our network and possibilities. Each project or initiative involves collaboration with a different member of society. Sometimes these relationships may be temporary, but we prefer long-term commitments with a shared goal. Salient examples are our collaboration with the Provincial Environment Federation for our “Nacht van de Nacht” project, and with energy company Eneco for our “Zeekracht” project. We also offer expert advice to policy makers and opinion formers to help them make sustainable choices.
Ultimately, we want to redefine the sustainable choice as the attractive choice for everybody: for the consumer deciding what food to buy, for the CEO formulating company policy, and for the politician making decisions of national importance.
