Sustainability Committee

Doing Green Together

The Dutch culture values ​​the importance of sustainability, just as much within the business world. Many of the Dutch companies pursue a strict sustainability policy, not only in the Netherlands but far beyond, including in Brazil.

In the context of “Doing Good Together“, Dutcham also aims to unite its Dutch companies around important sustainability themes in Brazil.

Today, many of the Dutch companies already contribute to the sustainability policy in the local market. Dutcham wants to be the platform for communicating all these important and fundamental actions that are being taken. In addition, Dutcham has the ambition to go further and to be a driving force for even more “Doing Green Together“.

Finding a common ground for all companies

We launched a new Sustainability Committee in the beginning of 2021, and today 16 important Dutch companies based in Brazil actively participate in this bimonthly working group, under the supervision of our “Committee Ambassador”, Mr. Mark Wiessing (CEO Brazil at Rabobank), and with the honorary support of the Dutch Deputy Consul in RJ, Mr. Niels Veenis.

After discussing and finding a common ground for all companies involved, we created 3 sub-committees:

  • Agri & Food – Leader: Aline Aguiar (Rabobank);
  • Energy Transition – Leader: Rafael Torres (SBM Offshore);
  • Social Agenda – Leader: Peggy De Rop (Dutcham).
