    We look forward to welcoming you on the 4th July for our Sustainability seminar at Kasteel Woerden.

    Join us for the opportunity to hear from keynote speaker, astronaut André Kuipers, who will be answering your questions in a moderated debate with Manuel Adamini (Professional Speaker, Moderator, Interviewer, climate change, environmental finance, (corporate) sustainability).

    In addition to our industry partner Ortec Finance, we are pleased to welcome a number of leading experts in the field of sustainability: Marcel de Berg (Strategic impact ConnActor), Don Gerritsen (PRI’s Head of Benelux), Anne Gram (independent pension fund advisor and supervisor), Stuart Kinnersley (Co-founder and CIO at Affirmative IM) and Maarten Vleeschhouwer (policy advisor for the EC action plan on sustainable financing).

    As a thank you to our speakers and panelists for participating, we will make a donation to the charity “ Floorghana“, a Dutch foundation supporting for small-scale projects to improve living conditions in developing countries.

    The majority of the seminar will be in Dutch.
