SDGs contribution

Representing the integral approach to water challenges, the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) is more than aware that all different Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are intertwined and equally important. So are doing business and sustainability. At NWP we believe that business and sustainability go hand in hand. That environmental and economic challenges stimulate creativity and innovative solutions. We believe that businesses and therefore the economy will be more viable and resilient if long term sustainability is taken into account.

Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations

Global impact of the Dutch water sector

The Dutch water sector (DWS) has a crucial role to play when it comes to achieving the SDGs as water lies at the basis of human health, planetary health, robust resilient systems, food security as well as socio-economic and gender equality. We believe in and strive for equal global collaboration for a sustainable future, using water as a starting point.

NWP’s objective is to increase the impact of the Dutch water sector. We believe in a positive approach to achieve more impact worldwide, with the SDGs as guiding principles.
