Dutch cooperative and pension fund service provider PGGM becomes the latest member to join the Circular Economy 100 – a programme which convenes businesses, emerging innovators and regions to collaborate and share insights on the circular economy.

PGGM has approximately 675,000 members, offering services that include asset management, pension fund management, policy advice and management support. The circular economy offers innovative ways of structuring business models, and adapting a financial strategy to support this is crucial for companies in making the transition. We look forward to PGGM’s insights on investment and planning within the context of the circular economy.

“PGGM is continuously striving to create a valuable future for people, which begins with our strategy around core-business pensions. We equally acknowledge however, that a good pension will have more value in a liveable world and therefore sustainability is in our DNA. Our belief is that our economy should move from a linear to a circular approach. To contribute to this important development we are proud to join the CE100 programme, which is in our opinion the world’s leading platform on circular economy. The changes that are necessary for a circular economy can only be made if stakeholders collaborate, connect and contribute.” – Frido Kraanen, Director Cooperative & CSR, PGGM
