Sanne Verhoeven: Senior Corporate Communications Manager

“Public affairs doesn’t always have a good ring to it, so when we wanted to hire a public affairs agency, we wanted to be sure it had the same vision on sustainability. That is why we engaged #SustainablePublicAffairs, and it turns out that was the right choice! It’s great to see how their expertise and knowledge dovetails into ours, providing us the opportunity to propel the transition towards a more sustainable future together.”

LKAB

LKAB

Bo Krogvig Vice-President of Strategic Projects

“At LKAB we lead the way to fossil-free iron & steel making. We have invested massively in sustainability, like for example in our HYBRIT process. In order to thrive we need EU policy frameworks to make our performance on sustainability the norm for the rest of the industry and we need to convince the Commission not to favor the status-quo. That means we have a lot of convincing advocacy work to do. One of our partners is therefore #SustainablePublicAffairs, as they have the right combination of knowledge on content, creativity and credibility to help us to transform our sustainability leadership into a competitive advantage. We believe that working with them also says something about us and our commitment to competitive sustainability!”

Olivier Demeijer: Managing Director

From the very beginning, #SustainablePublicAffairs came up with numerous imaginative ideas and approaches, and we quickly got to a very clear strategy for photovoltaics, that makes business sense. I particularly admire their approach to accepting new clients, refusing any company, however large or well known, that is not entirely focused on a more sustainable future. They are the first to do PA this way and they are leading the sustainability revolution in their own sector: public affairs. Hopefully very soon #SustainablePublicAffairs will simply become the norm for all lobbying!

Joost de Kluijver: Founder and Director 

“In our view, #SustainablePublicAffairs’ has created the new standard for the PA industry. Not only because of their green mindset. We mostly appreciate their hands-on and pragmatic approach towards creating positive impact in Brussels.’’

André van Wageningen Director Public Affairs EU/NL 

“The time to have an impact as public affairs community is now – with the European Green Deal at full speed. In all honesty, for us this also meant we needed support to drive change. While looking for an agency that shares our vision, ambition as well as commitment to sustainability we decided to partner with #SustainablePublicAffairs. It turns out that was the right choice! We can bounce of ideas like we have been working together for years, build on each other’s competences and expertise and create the intimacy needed to make it all work, and propel the transition to a more sustainable future together.”

Niels Schreuder: Public Affairs & Communication

“Knowing the EU public affairs scene quite well, I was surprised by the audacity of Willem Vriesendorp to start a new and independent public affairs consultancy, breaking away from the traditional ones. Instead of accepting any work possible, they carefully judge which causes they will work on. Personally, I appreciate #SustainablePublicAffairs for the ability they’ve shown to bring us in touch with peers and like-minded clients, among which are pioneers and trendsetters in the field of renewable and sustainable energy solutions. It is amazing that just months after starting, they are so influential and successful already, and … this is just the beginning!”

Federico Magalini Managing Director 

“We decided to cooperate with #SustainblePublicAffairs because we needed not only a reliable partner supplying us with updated intelligence and information, but someone that shares our values and vision. We do not only need to understand main policy trends, but want to rely on a partner that can anticipate our needs and request. This is only possible when we both know where the sustainability journey will and should bring us!”

Camille Loth – Policy Manager

“It is not an easy task finding a public affairs agency that supports frontrunners for sustainability as its core business.

#SustainablePublicAffairs has taken up the challenge and through their expertise and knowledge of both processes and people in the EU public affairs world, they are striving and succeeding in fulfilling their mission. They also showed great flexibility in adapting to our needs and building the expertise of their team to provide the best support to us.

Working with the team of #SustainablePublicAffairs was definitely a success story for us, and we are grateful for the continuous and hard work they have put in helping us achieve our goals.”

Mélanie Lambelet – 
Director Communications and Government Affairs

“As the world’s largest recycler of aluminium, at Novelis we are used to pushing forward sustainable innovations and circular solutions for our sector. Therefore, we have been delighted to find a like-minded partner in #SustainablePublicAffairs.

Like us, they are not content to work in the ways of the past and they share our ambition to shape our respective sector towards a more sustainable future. Our collaboration thus far has been an energizing and successful experience, whether through insightful policy analysis or by exploring new lines of communication with peers and policy-makers alike. It’s an inspiring thought that one day all public affairs will look like this!”

Jules Besnainou – Director

“At Cleantech for Europe, our mission is to help the EU lead the race to net zero, by scaling up our clean technologies. #SustainablePublicAffairs is not a consultancy, they are part of our team.

They are helping us build relationships with top decision-makers in Brussels and advocate for ambitious climate innovation policy. Besides being very good at what they do, our mission alignment on decarbonisation means they’re thinking the same way we are.”

Clémence Arto – Head of European Government Affairs

“When I started looking for a consultancy firm to help us navigate the EU institutional and policy landscape, #SustainablePublicAffairs matched all my criteria: a human-size firm with a deep knowledge of the Brussels spheres and a true commitment for sustainability.

I had a lot of expectations and they have delivered above and beyond since day 1. With them by our side, I am confident that we can make a difference in the EU policies for the green and digital transition of the Built Environment.”

Niaga®

Autodesk

Sascha Bloemhoff, Marketing Director

“At Niaga® we redesign products for circularity, so materials won’t end up as waste. Ever. Together with partners, everyday products are designed with clean and infinite materials and reversible connections only. The Niaga® tag supports partners in the transparency of the materials used in their products, and enables the return, refurbishment and reuse of components and products again and again.

However, for reuse, repair, refurbishment and high level recycling to work ingredient transparency and standardized qualifications are crucial and still a missing link. For the circular economy to work they hopefully become the market norm. For that we need ambitious EU regulation.

To help us share this important learning on national and EU level we were looking for a PA agency that shares our sustainability drive and purpose and at the same time knows the policy landscape and relevant stakeholders. I must say that we are more than satisfied about our cooperation with #SustainablePublicAffairs. The whole team is very professional and pleasant to work with and has been excellent in understanding and representing our business, pointing us to the right information and opportunities and in connecting us to the right people. #SustainablePublicAffairs lives up to their reputation in every way.”

Eurelectric

Autodesk

Kristian Ruby – Secretary General

We are very happy that #SustainablePublicAffairs has helped us to coordinate positions on climate policy among our membership. Eurelectric strives to achieve a carbon-neutral electricity mix in Europe well before mid-century and it was a logical choice to be working with #SustainablePublicAffairs on this.

Apart from strong expertise on the content of the relevant policies, their team had proven track record in association affairs, which for us was a critical requirement. Based on our cooperation, I would not hesitate to recommend #SustainablePublicAffairs to other association leaders.
