Royal HaskoningDHV CEO Erik Oostwegel is one of the 1000+ signatories of the CEO Statement for Renewed Global Cooperation, developed by the United National Global Compact.
The Statement reaffirms business support to international cooperation across borders, sectors and generations to adapt to changing circumstances.
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and converging crises including climate change, public and private institutions need to show they are accountable, ethical, inclusive and transparent. This is the only way to achieve a more sustainable future for all.
The Statement — including the full list of CEO supporters — has been presented to the UN Secretary-General during the UN Private Sector Forum on Monday 21 September as part of the official commemorations for the UN's 75th anniversary.
