Impressions from First Green Transition Event on 18 June 2013
The first "Green Transition Event" on 18 June 2013 was very successful. The speakers Rob Bogaarts, Districts Manager Woonbedrijf Eindhoven, and Boele de Bie, CEO and Intivation In2care, told about their approach to realize a transition to on one hand to sustainable neighborhoods and on the other side to sustainable products and business. From these different cases, it was clear that the long-term success depends on the balance we bring between the pillars people, planet and profit. In the discussion session, everyone saw the opportunities that the transition to sustainability brings with it, but also the threats were not lost to the eye. The message was “believe in it, dare it and just do it."
Encouraged by the positive feedback on the event, the organizers of the event will proceed with setting up a platform for entrepreneurs who are interested in green transition. The objective is to gain insights into the development in this area, get inspired and exchange experiences with other entrepreneurs. The organizers of this event Newness, Cavell, Jan Krediet Management Consulting and Triceps will organize a second event. More information will follow.
