The coalition of Dutch companies and organisation is now appealing to negotiator Edith Schippers, to steer towards a government that prioritises sustainable policy and centralises our commitment to achieve the SDGs. By doing so, a more balanced world will be made more tangible - prioritising issues as the transition to renewable energy, (over) production and consumption, poverty, hunger, health, inequality and climate change on a local, national and global level.

  1. Align all new government policies with the SDGs
  2. Reform the tax system from labour to resources
  3. Reinstate the full development aid budget, enabling developing countries to achieve the SDGs.
