Advocacy for Ecopreneur.eu and MVO Nederland
Since 2014, Arthur ten Wolde has been working as Expert Circular Economy for MOV Nederland (until 2017: for De Groene Zaak) on advocacy for a circular economy, with a focus on the EU. Since 2015, he also became the Expert Circular Economy for Ecopreneur.eu, the European Sustainable Business Association representing over 2500 companies in seven member states. Ecopreneur.eu is the only cross-sectoral European business organization doing advocacy for strong circular economy policies. Highlights for 2017 were the nomination of Ecopreneur.eu in the Coordination Group of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform ECESP in October, and participation in the EC/EESC Circular Economy Stakeholder meeting in Brussels in March.
