Louise Vet takes first place in the Sustainable 100
Louise Vet is the director of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW). As the driving force behind the major national initiative on the recovery of diversity, the Deltaplan Biodiversiteitsherstel, Dutch newspaper Trouw has awarded her first place in the Sustainable 100. The Trouw Sustainable 100 is an annual list of the most influential and inspiring thinkers and doers involved in sustainability and nature in the Netherlands.
We are delighted to congratulate Louise Vet warmly on this first place.
The protection of valuable nature is a central theme in Adessium’s Humans & Nature Program. We are working to put a stop to the downward trend of loss of biodiversity. That’s why we’re also contributing to the Deltaplan Biodiversiteitsherstel.
The Deltaplan Biodiversiteitsherstel aims to achieve food production within the planet’s capacity and with consideration for animal welfare, having a positive effect on livability in the Netherlands. The plan offers widely supported solutions for the recovery of biodiversity in natural areas, agricultural areas and public spaces. 19 parties, made up of nature organizations, farmers, scientists, banks and companies, have joined forces in the biodiversity cooperation group ‘Samen voor biodiversiteit’ and are working together on the Deltaplan Biodiversiteitsherstel.
