We extend our sincere appreciation to all the members of the NBC and guests who joined us at the eagerly awaited COP28 Business over Breakfast event on December 7th. Having you in attendance was a true pleasure.
The event commenced with opening remarks from Tanneke Egbers, Executive Director of the Netherlands Business Council, and Focco Vijselaar, Secretary-General of VNO-NCW. Attendees had the privilege of hearing insights from distinguished speakers such as Sabine Stuiver from Hydraloop, Irene Visser from Atradius, and Jessie-Lynn from Van der Hoeven, who shared their sustainable solutions and key takeaways from the COP.
The morning was brimming with enlightening discussions, thought-provoking ideas, and a shared commitment to a greener future. Witnessing the enthusiasm and dedication of each participant as we collectively explored innovative approaches to address climate change was truly inspiring.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Dutch Consul General Carel Richter of the Embassy and Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the UAE for generously hosting this impactful event at his residence. Additionally, we express gratitude to Jeroen Schillings from the Consulate for his support in organizing this inspiring gathering.
