New Economics Festival 2022

New Economics Festival 2022

MVO Nederland, a network of partners that innovate and implement together to achieve the new economy, organizes and makes the New Economy Festival 2022 climate positive.

About NE22

The New Economy Festival 2022 (NE22) will start on May 13, 2022 at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. With around 1,000 visitors, it is the largest business sustainability festival of the year. The program consists of breakout sessions, lectures, networking opportunities and keynote speakers.

This year the theme is: an ode to discomfort. ‘To achieve the new economy we have to change. As an entrepreneur, as a company, as a government. And as a human being. Only, change is exciting. Change takes energy. And yes, that causes discomfort. Get over your fear of the unknown and show courage. Engaging in conversations with people who think differently. Dare to say what you think, regardless of your interests or role. The simplest way is also the most comfortable: don’t change.’ – according to MVO Nederland

Practice what you preach

MVO Nederland wants to set a good example with the sustainability festival by making it as sustainable as possible. For example, Renewi is the main event partner and the festival is waste-free. The catering is completely vegetarian, the heating is turned off, no print is used and MVO Nederland encourages train travel.

Although MVO Nederland reduces CO₂ emissions, not all emissions can be prevented. That is why making the event climate positive is an important final step. MVO Nederland compensates more than the CO₂ emissions incurred by the festival with our projects that reduce CO₂ emissions. And that makes the festival climate positive!

“During NE20 we also collaborated with FairClimateFund. This collaboration went very well, which is why we entered into a collaboration again this year. And what’s even better, thanks to FairClimateFund we can ensure that the festival becomes climate positive this edition!”

Trees in Peru & Cookstoves in Ethiopia

Both projects reduce CO₂. Trees store CO₂ and cookstoves reduce logging. In addition, the projects also have another advantage. They contribute to improved living conditions for people vulnerable to climate change. Projects Reforestation for coffee farmers in Peru and Cookstoves for coffee farmers in Ethiopia are certified by Gold Standard and the Fairtrade Climate Standard. Which means that local partners own the carbon credits and part of the proceeds are also invested in climate adaptation. More about the standards
