With many years of experience within various roles related to sustainability she is the perfect start of the day to provide the foundation for the current level of sustainability within the Netherlands, within Dutch and international companies, and what it means for procurement. In addition, she will provide us with a glance of what the future innovations within sustainability might look like and what we can learn from that in our daily lives, both work related and in our personal lives.
