Julius Lindenbergh of the municipality of Almere, opened the Amsterdam Stock Exchange because Almere has the most sustainable houses and buildings of all the 15 largest municipalities in the Netherlands Engineering and consultancy firm Sweco made an analysis of the energylabels of all houses and buildings in the 15 largest municipalities in the Netherlands.
A conclusion from this analysis is that relatively young municipalities ánd municipalities with a lot of new houses, are scoring higher in the ranking, whilst municipalities with large historical areas are challenged to make their buildings sustainable. Sustainable houses and buildings are an important tool to reduce the use of energy and to achieve the climate goals.
To analyse the energy labels, Sweco used their self-developed tool the Energy Strategy Atlas: a GeoWeb tool based on public data, combining more than 70 map layers with local data and analytics.

Mario Willemsen, Manager Finance and Control of the Dierenbescherming rings the bell for the annual fundraising campaign named ‘Help ons redden’. Each year they save thousands of animals in need for which they need support.
On this worldwide animals Day they also ask attention for the existence of a benchmark about animal welfare, in which big global and Dutch companies in the food industry have gone through an assessment of the company practice on farm animal welfare. This benchmark, funded by other animal welfare organisations gives possibilities to make sustainable investments which are proven animal friendly. In taking account animal welfare concepts investors can give animals the share which they deserve.
The Dutch animal protection company, de Dierenbescherming, is pleased to work together with commercial businesses to achieve an animal friendly environment. Therefore, they are looking for more companies and financial partners who are willing to conduct a sustainable business model.
The Dierenbescherming endeavours to diminish or prevent disrupted animal welfare and tries to improve the conditions for animals as for human being with animals. This is done by various projects and in cooperation with service companies like Dierenbuddy and a Helpdesk for animal-aid workers.
Partner animal welfare organisations such as Compassion in World Farming and World Animal Protection funded the actual benchmark for animal welfare. This benchmark is used as working practice with global companies in the food industry. To see which investors already use and support this benchmark, click here.
The Dierenbescherming, a nationwide organisation, is devoted to save animals day or night. This work is done by specially designed animal ambulances, animal shelters, special inspectors and thousands of volunteers all over the country. On a yearly basis they give shelter to 20.000 animals whereas their ambulances respond to about 65.000 calls for assistance.
Their inspectors of the Landelijke Inspectiedienst Dierenbescherming (LID) and special field volunteers deal with thousands of calls of neglect or abuse of animals. Furthermore, the Dierenbescherming gives information at schools, lobbies with political parties and tries to prevent future animal suffering by their field workers.
With the ‘Beter Leven keurmerk’ of the Dierenbescherming they annually save more than 35 millions animals in live stock farming.

KVK Innovation Top 100 – PHYSEE is the winner
PHYSEE in Delft with Smartskin, a glass façade with integrated solar cells and sensors, wins the 14th edition of the KVK Innovation Top 100. This is why Grace Copplestone, Supply Chain Manager at PHYSEE, together with KVK sounds the gong.
About KVK Innovation Top 100
KVK publishes this ranking annually with 100 innovations in Dutch small and medium-sized businesses. The winner can call himself the most innovative SME company in the country for a year.
All innovations have been assessed for their impact on the industry and society, originality, availability, realized turnover and growth potential. There is no cash prize attached to the KVK Innovation Top 100. The ranking gives a good picture of the innovative power of SMEs at the moment. North and South Holland are represented the best with 22 companies, followed by Gelderland with 14 companies. After the IT sector, most innovations came from the creative industry and construction sectors. The announcement of the 14th Chamber of Commerce Innovation Top 100 took place in the Amsterdome in Amsterdam.
Where the glass industry was not interested at first, glass producers are now starting to show more and more interest. From a small start-up, PHYSEE has now become a scale-up with more than 30 employees from 10 countries. The first international assignments are now starting to come in. TU Delft is a shareholder and partner in this company. The jury was unanimous: "It is seen as a breakthrough technology for the world. Every architect can apply it this way. PHYSEE stands for a future in which buildings become energy positive without compromising on the aesthetics of the facades. That makes this company a justified winner. "
PHYSEE's patented invention consists of solar cells in the glass that generate electricity and sensors that make the glass smart. The solar cells ensure that there is always green energy in the facade. The sensors measure environmental data such as temperature, light and air quality and use this information to cool, heat and illuminate buildings in a more energy-efficient way. Thus, buildings become 25% more energy efficient and comfortable.KVK Innovation Top 100 30/09/2019 - 9:15AM CESTAmsterdam
