  • Alderman for the Municipality of Haarlemmemeer, The Netherlands

The Municipality of Haarlemmermeer, which borders Amsterdam and includes Schiphol Airport, the principal international airport of the Netherlands, has established a reputation as a leading international place for corporations to establish their businesses. Haarlemmermeer has developed a unique approach to sustainability that includes the Netherlands’ first cradle-to-cradle business development designed by William McDonough.
