Published on 12-03-2020
Schiphol Trade Park Services, Milgro, Meerlanden and Nijssen Recycling have signed the Schiphol Trade Park Waste and Raw Materials Management Cooperation Agreement on 11 March. With this agreement, STP Services offers the three parties the opportunity to advise companies that establish themselves at Schiphol Trade Park in Hoofddorp about a circular approach to waste and raw materials management. Laurens Groen, CEO Milgro: “We are happy to commit to the ambition of area developer SADC. We look forward to working together and achieving profitable sustainability in the chain. ”
 
Increasing sustainable impact together

Schiphol Trade Park Services (STP Services) is responsible for area management at Schiphol Trade Park, which is developed by Schiphol Area Development Company (SADC). The partners can, if desired, facilitate companies in their transition to more sustainable business operations. They do this, for example, by performing a waste and raw material scan and digitizing the processes and data surrounding waste materials. At area level, this approach connects the companies. The data provides insight into the opportunities to jointly increase the sustainable impact. This sustainable use of waste and raw materials is then part of the business model of the companies. Angeline Kierkels, managing director Meerlanden: "By entering into this partnership, we are accelerating towards a sustainable and circular business park."
 
Future-proof

Marisol Elisabeth, STP Services area manager: “With this collaboration, we want to not only advise companies at Schiphol Trade Park, but also offer a proven approach for utilizing their raw material flows. By extension, they can take a raw material flow strategy and measures at building level. And that also benefits the environment, now and in the future. ”
 

Gerard Nijssen, director of Nijssen Recycling: “If people want to live in balance with nature, recycling is a necessity. Working with closed cycles is in our genes; Schiphol Trade Park's ambition fits in seamlessly with this. ”
