PRESS RELEASE • Amersfoort, 21 February 2022
NCD (Dutch Association of Supervisory Directors and Directors) opts for sustainable meeting through partnership with Onemeeting.com
As of March 1, 2022, all meetings, training courses and overnight stays that NCD organizes in the Netherlands are CO2 neutral, through the compensation that Onemeeting.com realizes with Groenbalans. And with the ISO 27001 certification, digital security is optimally safeguarded. This is the concrete result of the multi-year partnership that NCD is entering into with the booking platform Onemeeting.com. NCD is part of the SDG-House Campus Landgoed Zonheuvel and thus actively promotes the 17 sustainability goals of the United Nations.
“NCD director Karlijn L'Ortye: 'We are very happy that we can meet physically again, because that is the core of our association. We like to go for the Next Level and have therefore looked at what we can do more. It is an extra nice start that all our courses, meetings and overnight stays are now 'CO2 neutral'. Not only the location, but also the travel movement is taken into account and compensated, which makes it nicely round. When choosing a location, we prefer sustainable meeting locations and that is now very easy via the Onemeeting.com platform.”
“People cannot live without each other. They continue to visit and meet each other. That is our vision. In recent years we have learned that digital communication is a fantastic tool, but can never replace face-to-face meetings. Experience requires real meetings. Onemeeting.com helps NCD find the best locations for those meetings and they are increasingly sustainable. We are proud that it is precisely this representation of the leading Netherlands that makes a clear choice for our platform here”, says Luc van Bussel, CEO of Onemeeting.com.
NCD chairman Paul Geraeds. “Sustainability is rightfully rising higher on the strategic priority list in the boardrooms of the Netherlands. With our modest, but very visible and concrete contribution to the climate goals, we also want to be an inspiration for our community, which can and must make the same choices for their companies.”
The Dutch Association for Supervisory Directors and Directors – founded in 1953 – is the platform and community for leaders and supervisors in the Netherlands.
