foto AMJ mei 2014As a consultant with more than 20 years of experience in CSR/sustainability strategy, issue management, systems thinking and stakeholder engagement, I am convinced that cooperation between business, science, NGOs and government and the will to listen and share dilemmas are key to a successful transition to an eco-effective (or circular) economy.
