The final of the Circular Entrepreneurship Award
On August 30, we received the jury of DORZ for a company visit. It was an interesting afternoon where we could present our company and show how circulair entrepreneurship is part of our DNA and of our parent company GICOM. The presentation of the award took place during and entrepeneurs event of VNO-NCW Midden Nederland on the estate of Havezate den Alerdinck in Laag Zuthem.
During the award ceremony all finalists were praised for their performance and the jury mentioned that we are all a motivation for other companies in the transition to a circular economy. Circular entrepreneurship is not a trend, but instead it is a motivation towards creating a beautiful world of which we and future generations can enjoy. Despite the fact that we did not win the award, we congratulate van Werven Plastic Recycling with this wonderful prize and achievement. Read more about the award.
