'Not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk'

May 24, 2017

The Minister for the Environment from the Netherlands, Sharon Dijksma, spoke about the examples of close partnership between California and the Netherlands, as the 2 countries, “not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk” on climate change.

She implored the 2 countries to continue to push boundaries, like true pioneers, explaining that Paris wasn’t just about sending a political message that we must combat climate change, it was about showing that we can.

Most businesses don’t think action is happening enough. In the US hundreds of businesses are calling for climate initiatives to continue, and in the Netherlands, she pointed out, companies want certainty, and not only that, but climate policy creates jobs.
