TRADE ASSOCIATIONS NETWORK

The Trade Associations Network comprises representatives of trade associations, sector organisations and professional bodies. Under the guidance of MVO Nederland they take steps towards the New Economy, by working together, learning from each other and particularly developing sustainable innovations together. The aim is to inspire the small and medium-sized businesses that are part of the trade associations and to work on delivering the New Economy as fast as possible. Ultimately it is the only way to continue to do business.

Members of the Trade Associations Network receive guidance from MVO Nederland not only to enable their members to run futureproof businesses, but also to have their own organisation take the necessary steps. For example, the network meets three times a year to agree actions and chart its direction. We also organise various network and knowledge events to meet others in and outside the network, which regularly lead to unexpected cooperation and innovation. The guiding principles in all these activities are set out in our New Business Agenda, which shows the fastest route to the New Economy.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THE TRADE ASSOCIATIONS NETWORK?

As a member of the Trade Associations Network we will help you develop sustainable initiatives, within the sector, among members and internally. Together with around 30 other trade associations you will define the rules of play in the New Economy. You will jointly set up projects that benefit the world as a whole, but also you as an organisation. And you will have a say in political lobbying activities in The Hague and Brussels.

WHO IS ALREADY PART OF THE TRADE ASSOCIATIONS NETWORK?

Koninklijke Horeca Nederland, Koninklijke Metaalunie, the Dutch Cosmetics Industry Association and UNETO-VNI are already members.
