In Groene Groeiers, Glenn van der Burg spoke with Thor Tummers of Unilever, Wouter van Neerbos of Obbotec and Adri Bom, Provincial Executive Member for the Province of South Holland, about the challenges in the field of plastics and recycling.

Imagine a world without plastics. That’s not easy! Plastic is a very versatile material. For example the use of packaging, but also as a bumper for your car. Yet plastic causes major problems. Huge amounts of plastic have ended up in our environment. The plastic soup in the oceans, but take a look during a walk to the ground in the city, a park or forest. Besides that, of course, we make plastics mainly from oil. With all its consequences. Big challenges and therefore big opportunities for entrepreneurs in recycling and bio-plastics. In this episode we ask Unilever what their challenge is in the field of plastics and we look for a solution at innovative companies.

How do we leave the world to future generations? Drought, global warming, depletion of raw materials and air pollution. Do we have affordable solutions to these problems? You can hear this and more every month in the program ‘Green Groeiers’ on New Business Radio.

It’s impossible to imagine life without sustainability. In our daily lives, in politics and, of course, in business. In Groene Groeiers, presenter Glenn van der Burg and various studio guests are looking for a match that leads to innovative processes, products and services that are sustainable and profitable.

Every second Friday of the month between 11:00 and 12:00 you can hear Groene Groeiers on New Business Radio.┬áIn this radio program you will hear the challenges of entrepreneurs, the sustainable solutions, inspiration and thus ‘the match’. Or not. Groene Groeiers is an entrepreneurial network of VNO-NCW, in which entrepreneurs take on sustainability challenges.
