Nationale Vereniging De Zonnebloem sounds the gong for 70 years anniversary

On the 17th of Janurary 2019 ‘Nationale Vereniging de Zonnebloem’ turns 70 years old. The NGO enriches the life of people with a physical disability. Caroll Sastro, who uses a wheelchair for everyday life, opens the stock exchange to celebrate this anniversary.

Nationale Vereniging de Zonnebloem
38,000 volunteers are active in every neighborhood, village and city in the Netherlands. They visit people at home. Most people with a physical disability cannot leave their homes as much as they want. Due to lack of personal help and/or because of medical care they need. That is why 1,100 local Zonnebloem branches organise activities, such as day trips and holidays. Annually over 112,000 people participate in those activities.

The NGO improves the accessibility of the most visited leisure locations in the Netherlands. Therefore 750 wheelchair users act as mystery guests and test theme parks, cinemas, zoo’s, theaters, football stadiums, and so on. Also, de Zonnebloem has a fleet of 50 wheelchair rental cars, across the Netherlands.

17/12/2018 KNVB and ENGIE launch GO smart mobility program Amsterdam expand

KNVB and ENGIE jointly launch the GO smart mobility program 

In Dutch football there are tens of thousands of games every week. The traffic that goes with it (players, supporters and family members) causes a huge amount of pollution: 65 kiloton of CO₂ emissions per year.

KNVB and ENGIE are tackling the challenge of achieving CO₂ reduction across all kinds of transport, such as bus, car and train. Various solutions will be developed jointly in the coming years. Such as optimizing the playing schedule, integrating new modes of transport, implementation of smart charging stations and designing technical solutions for, for example, 'driving to the games together'.

Football is the largest sport in the Netherlands which means that an optimal impact can be generated on CO₂ reduction.

ENGIE Nederland
ENGIE stands out with regards to the energy transition of almost all its competitors. Because it is both a technical service provider and an energy supplier, the company can mean just a bit more for its customers. With smart technological solutions, the company looks at whether it can reduce the energy needs of its customers. Then it fills in the remaining energy requirement with renewable energy. ENGIE accelerates the transition with this two-step model.
