The event opened with a welcome speech of Aart Korteland, former Chairman of the Green Award, and presentation of the Foundation’s achievements over these 15 years. It was followed by a presentation of Ronald Naar, a famous mountain climber who compared the growth of the Green Award scheme with managing an expedition to the top of a mountain.
