Myriam Tryjefaczka, Sustainability and public affairs Director EMEA at Tarkett
“As main funding partner of this initiative, we find it important that Ecopreneur.eu and MVO Nederland advocate policy measures at the EU level that are both forward looking and realistic. Forward looking, because aiming for cross sectoral systems change. Realistic, because based on the experience of green SMEs as well as pioneering large companies.”
Janneke Leenaars, Head of Sustainable Development at Interface EMEA
“Interface supports Ecopreneur.eu because it helps us to promote the advantages of doing circular business, for society as a whole as well as for companies. To achieve this, we advocate a tax shift from labour to resources, and creating transparency throughout the value chain.”
Timothy Glaz, Head of Corporate Affairs at Werner & Mertz GmbH
Lennart Nuebel, Public Affairs for REMONDIS Sustainable services
REMONDIS joined the Ecopreneur Group in 2018. Being a member of BNW, the German waste management services company shares the views of Ecopreneur.eu and finds it important that these are well represented at the EU level. One of their quotes is: “Everything made by people should be separable by people as well.“
Julia Breidenstein, Sustainability and Public Relations at HUMANA Kleidersammlung GmbH
“Textiles cause 10 % of global CO2 emissions and many other problems. The majority of post-consumer clothes can be reused as clothes, which is of top priority in the waste hierarchy and fits with Sustainable Development Goal 12. The second hand sector needs more political support. We go for a reduced VAT on resold goods and transparency in the post-consumer value chain.”
