Energy & Climate

The Netherlands is a leader in promoting environmental sustainability that will generate economic growth. By developing innovative technologies, forming smart public-private partnerships and integrating climate and energy policy, we are advancing short- and long-term climate change solutions that have a real impact. Our approach to address climate change is based on the Netherlands’ belief that we can help solve this global challenge through global solutions.

The Netherlands is America’s third largest investor and the world’s 16th largest economy, and we partner closely with U.S. businesses, government leaders and NGOs. We hope to share our expertise in sustainable urban planning, energy-efficient agriculture, cutting-edge renewable energy sources and successful environmental policies with United States as it too develops clean technologies and responds to climate change. Together, we are showing that environmental improvements and economic opportunities go hand-in-hand.
