and this is why: ⤵️
We want to create positive impact for now and for generations to come. In doing so, we believe in sustainable and innovative services on the one hand and socially responsible business practices on the other. For example, we are part of a global group of leading companies that choose ambitious climate action: the Science-Based Targets initiative. We have recently sharpened our ambition to carbon-neutral operations by 2026. We are also home to proud engineers as well as a large group of cycling enthusiasts. We are therefore very proud to support the Climate Classic for the third year in a row, as a partner and by participating.
This year you will also find us at the last break location at the forest campsite in Appelscha. Not for nothing have we chosen this location because nearby we have been busy with project 'de Oude Willem'. This area is part of the N2000 area Drents Friese Wold. The project focuses on mining and landscaping of the area, aimed at anti-desiccation and increasing biodiversity.
Antea Group is an internationally operating engineering and consulting firm. Together, we build a safe, healthy and future-proof living environment every day. You will find the very best specialists in the Netherlands, as well as innovative solutions in the field of data, sensoring and IT. This enables us to contribute to the development of infrastructure, residential areas or water works. But also to issues surrounding climate adaptation, energy transition and the replacement task. We think along critically and always from the mindset of going for the best result together. In this way we have been anticipating today's questions and tomorrow's solutions for more than 70 years.
Together, we make the world a little more beautiful every day.
Concerns about climate, biodiversity and sustainable business require reflection and attention. We face a major task of accelerated systemic change. The legal framework is part of a much broader ecological and social context, which has also become a boardroom theme.
Eversheds Sutherland seeks to contribute wherever possible to the sustainability task facing every company. ESG in an international setting also requires international support, including legal support. Investing in the development of renewable energy is one of the most important parts of the ESG task. Our Clean Energy Team is continuously involved in the wind, solar and biomass markets, among others.
Because of our focus on all aspects of sustainability, our partnership with Cycling 4 Climate Classic is a natural fit.
Sia Partners is fully engaged in the fight for climate changes by adapting itself and encouraging suppliers and customers to adapt and decarbonize. For that reason Sia Partnerss is excited to partner with Cycling 4 Climate to bring awareness to the consequences of rising sea levels for the Netherlands.
What better way to do this than to engage in one of the most typically Dutch activities - cycling! Additionally, the Climate Classic race is a superb way to connect with other like minded individuals and organisations.
The Enlit team enjoys working with the Climate Classic to raise awareness around climate change. As a platform where the European energy sector comes together both digitally and physically, we and our partners strive to bring everyone along and thus accelerate the energy transition in a fair way.
Together we are strong and can get a tremendous amount done!
DAREL Education develops educational modules and organizes master classes for high schools, universities, businesses and other organizations to create understanding, awareness and support for the energy transition.
We believe it is necessary to embed understanding about the energy transition in education. Through our education program, we aim to create sustainable communities across generations of society. We do this on a non-profit basis and are also happy to connect with your children's school.
We look forward to working with a host of Climate Classic cyclists to collectively increase our impact.
KNMI advises and warns society to reduce the risks related to weather, climate and seismology. We conduct scientific research on climate and climate change. We also share knowledge with social partners so that they can shape their climate adaptation work. This October, we will release the new national climate scenarios. The KNMI climate scenarios have been leading our national climate mitigation and climate adaptation plans for years.
In addition, we publish a weekly climate report on our website( all 500 reports can be read backhere ). By doing so, we hope to increase general knowledge about climate change and keep the subject continuously high on the agenda. Contributing to Cycling 4 Climate thus fits well with our activities and the KNMI mission. We look forward to seeing all the climate cyclists this year flashing through De Bilt, past the KNMI tower.
The water boards are dealing with the effects of climate change every day. Think of periods of prolonged drought and extreme downpours. These will only become more frequent in the future. Together with other authorities, organizations and residents, we will have to make careful considerations to keep our area livable. We would like to spread this message during the Climate Classic. We hope to make people in our area more aware of climate change and how we can prevent it and be better prepared for possible consequences. Our water board is also committed to reducing CO2 emissions and becoming climate neutral. We encourage market parties with whom we work on maintenance of dikes, water, pumping stations, dams, sluices and sewage treatment plants to become more sustainable and seek innovative solutions. Emission-free and circular work is not yet self-evident, but in this way it is slowly but surely becoming the new standard. We are also making our working environment more sustainable and are motivating employees to do their bit by commuting to work by bike or public transport more often. The Climate Classic ties in nicely with this: cycling to draw attention to the climate.
Climate change and the advent of new technologies and techniques demand new energy-efficient solutions for heating, cooling and ventilation. Products with lower energy consumption provide a better and healthier indoor environment, without harming the outdoor climate.
Jaga Climate Designers strives to replace traditional systems with high energy consumption and high pollutant emissions with alternative systems as much as possible. We are happy to collaborate on a better, sustainable future.
"Caring for the climate is no longer a choice, but an obligation for all of us!" That's why our Climate Designers are cycling the tmorning along the new coastline created in the Netherlands when the sea level rises too far, therein order to draw attention to the outdoor climate!
We are Climate Designers! What about you!

Everything you see around you is thought up by people like you and me. The companies, the economy, the system. It's not something that's just there, and always will be.... No, it is something that is always in motion, and set in motion by people. People finding new ways, seeing new opportunities, not settling for the status quo. Because, well, things can be better, more sustainable, healthier, fairer, more profitable.
For all these people, working at all these companies who are not waiting for the future but want to shape it themselves, there is a platform. The change platform for the business world of tomorrow. Companies where change is not an agenda item, but a business model.
As an entrepreneur, you want to keep doing business. MVO Nederland is convinced that this is only possible in the new economy: climate-neutral, circular, inclusive and with fair chains. That is why we are forming a movement with entrepreneurs towards that new economy. Because we want to achieve it as soon as possible, we have to make our movement as big as possible now.
"Our role? We show what the route to the new economy looks like." We support that by bringing about innovation through projects with unexpected collaborations. And create conditions with governments and financiers that simplify and accelerate the achievement of our goal.
We are happy to participate with partners in the Climate Classic. Because it accelerates the path to the new economy, but also because cycling has so many similarities to our work. Our director-director Maria van der Heijden - herself a cyclist and participant in the Climate Classic - wrote this earlier blog post about it.
