We work with the following partners:

Rijkswaterstaat : is the executive arm of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. On behalf of the Minister and State Secretary, Rijkswaterstaat is responsible for the design, construction, management and maintenance of the main infrastructure facilities in the Netherlands.

Alterra : is the research institute for our green living environment. We offer a combination of practical and scientific research in a multitude of disciplines related to the green world around us and the sustainable use of our living environment. Flora and fauna, soil, water, the environment, geo-information and remote sensing, landscape and spatial planning, man and society: just some of the numerous aspects of our green environment that Alterra focuses on.

Deltares : is an independent institute for applied research in the field of water, subsurface and infrastructure. Throughout the world, Deltares works on smart solutions, innovations and applications for people, environment and society.

Energie research Centre of the Netherlands : is the largest research centre in the Netherlands in the field of energy. The group Environmental Risk Assessment focuses on the environmental risks associated with the (re)use of contaminated materials, in particular the potential 'leaching' of contaminants.

InfoMil : is an organisation that serves as an intermediary between the various authorities and target groups in the Netherlands. It works on the basis of government policy and policy instruments, such as acts, decrees, non-legally binding regulations and guidelines, levies, individual licenses, covenants, long-term agreements on energy efficiency (MJAs in Dutch), environmental management systems, etc. InfoMil focuses on groups (such as municipalities and provinces) that are expected to implement this policy, using the instruments referred to above.

NEN : also serves as the Registration Authority for a number of international standards. The NEN website provides information about standards and standardisation.

Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment : The Netherlands is a densely populated country. Its economic and leisure activities are extensive and expanding, so it is not surprising that the quality of the environment is facing serious threats. The Dutch government, along with the general public and the business community, are therefore looking for ways to attain sustainable development.

National Institute for Public Health and the Environment : The RIVM is a recognised leading centre of expertise in the fields of health, nutrition and environmental protection which mainly works for the Dutch government. Environmental risks are evaluated by assessing the potenially adverse effects resulting from poor environmental quality. Adverse effects can proliferate themselves in such important categories as human health, nature, food quality and water supply. In collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, RIVM is responsible for setting environmental quality standards to reduce the risk of environmental deterioration.

Waste and Materials : implements programmes, subsidy schemes and national and international regulations relating to waste. It also advises on the preparation and evaluation of waste policy.

Wageningen University : is the leading European university in Life Sciences. Researchers and students focus on the fields of nutrition, health, nature and the living environment. For the fourth consecutive year in a row, Wageningen University has topped the list of 14 Dutch universities in the Guide to Choosing Higher Education.
