    3. Municipality of Zoetermeer

    Zoetermeer.jpgZoetermeer is located close to the Hague. The city has 125.000 inhabitants, 50.000 houses,and local companies offer some 45.000 jobs. The city offers a pleasant and high quality living environment with a favourable location on the edge of Hollands green heart. Within the region Zoetermeer is strong in leisure (indoor skiing, wild water rafting etc.) and ICT. Within 20 years Zoetermeer wants to be in the top 10 of most sustainable Dutch municipalities.


    The Municipality of Zoetermeer
    and the GREENOV project

    Role and actions
    The main project within GREENOV is the transformation of sports-facility De Veur to a sustainable and energy-efficient public building that demonstrates the positive effects on the environment. Sustainability is one of the city’s leading principles. Zoetermeer was the first municipality to set up a local energy agency and the programme “sustainable Zoetermeer” is now officially on the agenda of the board. In the framework of the SEA programme (“socio-economic agenda”) Zoetermeer makes long term agreements with local partners.

    Objectives and expectations
    The main objective is to make a state of the art project, a showcase for sustainable development.
    Target groups are inhabitants, companies and the municipal organisation itself. The project has raised awareness toward inhabitants, companies and local government and has shown that GREENOV can and should contribute to a sustainable future.
    “We expect that close collaboration and exchange of knowledge will enable partners to achieve better results than without the
    partnership. We hope that the collaboration between partners will have a lasting effect.”
