Why did we start the Tomorrow is Green campaign? Well, because tomorrow should be greener than today. Whether it is in Vietnam or the Netherlands, sustainability is key. It assures that we keep this planet in good shape for ourselves and future generations.
We can contribute by making simple adjustments in our personal lives. We can ride a bicycle, save energy and be eco-friendly. We all know what we ought to do. But this is not something we can do alone. We should create a sustainable future together.
We can learn a lot from the business community. Some Vietnamese and Dutch enterprises have excellent sustainability programs. Below you can find some great stories from companies about sustainable business ventures already under way in Vietnam!
People sometimes ask me about my biggest personal goal. My goal is to bring as many inspiring Dutch and Vietnamese ideas together as I can.
