Hendrik develops the climate action pillar as an integral part of the WBA strategy and operations. He conducts research, develops the climate action strategy, builds and maintains a network of relevant stakeholders and applies for funding. Hendrik believes climate action is not only a big threat (which it is) but also about business opportunities and creating welfare for everyone around the globe at the same time. In his work Hendrik aims to bring these elements together. For 10 years Hendrik was active in the field of humanitarian assistance, mainly in Latin America. In 2010, he went through a professional transition and entered the field of corporate strategies of energy companies related to the sustainable energy transition and climate action.
