Sven Kallen and Egbert Sonneveld took advantage of the LIFE+ Operation CO2 technical meeting they were holding on July 1 in Madrid  to attend a  presentation on sustainability and companies, conducted by Jan Peter Balkenende. Former Prime Minister of the Netherlands and currently member of EY Netherlands, Balkenende was in Madrid to participate in the Fourth Global Sustainability Forum. This event was organized by EY (Ernst & Young) and by the Iberoamerican General Secretariat (SEGIB).

The conference offered an excellent opportunity to the "Operation CO2" project partners to network and to present the project. Mr. Balkenende promised to share the information with interested partners in the framework of the "Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition" platform, of which he is president. This platform, with partners such as AkzoNobel, DSM, FrieslandCampina, Heineken, KLM, Philips, Shell and Unilever, actively promotes sustainability issues within their own companies and their supply chains.
