The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy is working on the green future of the Netherlands. However, she does not do this alone. The climate objectives can only be achieved if the business community also plays an active role in this transition. During this evening, Focco Vijselaar, Director-General of Business and Innovation, will present his vision on cooperation between the national government and the business community and will then enter into an open dialogue with the participants about how the Netherlands can achieve its green ambitions.
