Masterclass | Circulair Ondernemen | Samenwerkingen opzetten

Featured image

Dit is de vierde in een serie van zes achtereenvolgende masterclasses over circulair ondernemen.

About this event

Circulair ondernemen kun je niet alleen, als bedrijf moet je samenwerken met je leveranciers en het behalen van gezamenlijke doelen centraal stellen. Maar wat mag je verwachten van je leveranciers? Hoe denk je in oplossingen in plaats van problemen? Je wilt wel innovatief zijn, maar hoe? En wie gaat dat betalen?

Tijdens deze training ga je samen met andere MKB-bedrijven uit Noord-Holland kijken naar hoe je je leveranciers mee kan krijgen in jouw circulaire ambitie. Naar aanleiding van verschillende voorbeelden bespreken we de succes factoren van vruchtbare samenwerkingen.

Dit is de vierde masterclass in een reeks van zes. Deze serie is onderdeel van het jaarprogramma Circulaire Economie dat we in 2021 samen met Provincie Noord-Holland organiseren om het circulaire ecosysteem in de provincie te versterken.

Heb je de eerste drie masterclasses gemist? Geen probleem, je kunt de masterclasses online terugkijken. > https://bit.ly/e_learningce
Resultaat:

  • Overzicht van succesvolle samenwerkingen.
  • Tools en kennis om succesvolle samenwerkingen op te zetten met je leverancier.

Voor wie

Voor MKB in Noord-Holland en iedereen die wil weten hoe je een bedrijf (meer) circulair kunt maken, of dat nou je eigen bedrijf is of dat van je werkgever.

Trainer

Unpack Impact | 2021

Featured image

How can we enable systematic change through collaboration between entrepreneurs and financiers? Learn from new entrepreneur-investor models and take the food and agri sector as an example. The event is not restricted to the agrifood topic only.

The world has focused first on energy in its effort to stop greenhouse gas emissions, but agriculture is also a key contributor to climate change and biodiversity loss. Introducing transformative change in agriculture demands involvement from all actors in the value chain, from farmers and producers to investors and consumers. It also needs new economic models. How can investors, organisations, policymakers and farmers collaborate to create a sustainable, transformative change?

Join us for a provocative conversation about how innovators in food and agri are working with forward-thinking financiers to enable new models. How are these models applicable to other sectors? Together with Amsterdam Impact, we invite (soon-to-be) entrepreneurs and investors in diverse contexts to join us to hear the learnings, struggles and opportunities of co-creating new more generative models.

Hear from:

Danielle de Nie (Stichting Wij.land) and Liesbeth Soer (Triodos Regenerative Money Centre) about their collaboration to launch Aardpeer, an organisation making land available to nature-inclusive farmers. They will share insights on dealing with the issue of acquiring expensive farmland while transitioning towards sustainable change in agriculture.

Brad Vanstone (Willicroft), brings quality plant-based cheeses to market and is now working with Dutch dairy farmers to help them transition to more sustainable alternatives. As a systems-aware impact entrepreneur, he will share learnings on building a values-based enterprise and marketplace.

Eva Teekens (ReNature) brings both the entrepreneur and investor perspective in how to approach the transition to a regenerative model, and particularly in generating the first agroforestry carbon credits in Brazil, together with Rabobank through their new carbon marketplace Acorn.

Keynote

Our special keynote speaker is Joel Solomon<b>,</b> founding partner of Renewal Funds, Canada's largest mission venture capital firm, and co-author of The Clean Money Revolution, addressing investment strategies to boost systematic impact and transforming the culture of capitalism. Joel will share what he has learned from his wide experience in pioneering the integrated use of capital for social impact and strengthening sustainable businesses across various sectors.

About Alternative proteins
Alternative protein companies that relate to plantbased protein, cultured meat, and cultured fish are growing strongly. With only about one-tenth the carbon costs of animal-based foods but more “meat-like” product entrants every day, they could transform the food industry completely. While plantbased proteins are derived from pea or wheat ingredients, cultured lab-grown products attempt to make meat from animal cells grown or cultured in a lab, cruelty-free. What are the opportunities in the alternative proteins market in 2021/2022? Join us for a webinar over lunch and get acquainted with the trends and acceleration opportunities.

Lunchroom | Food Webinars | #2 Regenerative agriculture & biodiversity

Featured image

What are the opportunities for biodiversity in the market this year? Conventional farming is a huge driver of climate change and biodiversity loss. The good news is that regenerative agriculture could be the answer to turning it all around! However, scaling regenerative agriculture should not fall on farmers alone – it should be a joint effort across the supply chain.

Food companies and retailers should reward farmers who embrace these practices as well as governments, and intergovernmental organizations must reshape policies or plans and even incentivise regenerative agriculture. Consumers should be educated about this problem and encouraged to make conscious food choices, which will grow demand for sustainably produced products. Join us for this webinar and get to know more about the possibilities for your food startup to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable food system.

Get to know the latest from the regenerative agriculture & biodiversity industry and learn about our programmes in just 30 min during lunch!
