In late September 2017, The Natural Step’s international council converged on Lisbon, Portugal for its Annual General Meeting and strategy days. The Council would like to extend a warm welcome to the new Chairwoman and board elected to represent us:

The new board is already up and running with a number of task forces being created to strengthen our operations, business model and to prepare our network for the future. In particular the board is now leading the development of The Natural Step 4.0 – our strategy for the fourth decade of sustainable development. Stay tuned!

Please do not hesitate to contact any of our new board members or your closest TNS office to discuss how we can work together.
