A 'Sustainable State of the Union' speech
7 September is Sustainable Tuesday in the Netherlands. On this day the Dutch government receives a suitcase full of sustainable ideas to use in the upcoming year. In 2018, our CEO Volkert Engelsman, who was elected nr 1 in the Dutch Sustainable Top-100, was asked to deliver a ‘Sustainable State of the Union' speech on this day. In his inspirational speech he called for a new economy and an agricultural policy that sees biodiversity as an indicator of succes, with zero emissions, full transparency about hidden costs (and benefits), and food as medicine. With the Covid-19 crisis and the new EU “Farm to Fork” policy, this speech is more relevant than ever, so we bring it to your attention here: Sustainable State of the Union Speech.
