EVENTS & NETWORKING
How we do this? One way is by organising special events for like-minded businesses in your sector or supply chain. We also bring together entrepreneurs from different disciplines to create networks that will both inspire and motivate you. And who knows, perhaps the contacts you make there will also provide you with surprisingly useful collaborations and innovations.
MATCHMAKING IN THE NEW ECONOMY
You can also initiate longer-term collaborations with partners in your own sector. MVO Nederland has already proven itself to be the right partner to bring together partners in the concrete, textiles, leather, drinking-water, tourism, coffee and agrifood sectors in order to create a long-term coalition. Together they actively work on innovations and projects that help us realise the New Economy.
We do this both in the Netherlands and internationally. Some examples: we work on true cost accounting as a new method for transparency in the Dutch coffee trade. On processing waste – paddy straw – into furniture items instead of burning it. And on introducing chrome-free, environmentally friendly leather production in upcoming sourcing destinations. MVO Nederland identifies the sustainable business opportunities, initiates (pilot) projects and innovations, matches the right companies and stakeholders, both Dutch and internationally and supports them during the projects.
One thing is certain: as an independent organisation, MVO Nederland is the facilitator you need for matchmaking in the New Economy.
