Lead Energy

Focus: digital society, energy saving, ecosystem

A robust digital infrastructure is essential for a digital future, both for the Amsterdam region as well as the Netherlands. Marjolein wants to make a positive contribution to transitioning to a digital society that is sustainable, energy efficient while preserving scarce natural resources. With the Lower Energy Acceleration Program (LEAP) she is building an ecosystem with parties from the entire chain. To ensure making a real impact, organisations have to work together in a different way.

Marjolein studied Economics at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and worked at PwC, IBM Consulting, Deloitte and Shell, where she mainly focused on transitions and development of organisations.

“Technology will increase our quality of life in all sorts of ways. We must ensure that our digital footprint becomes zero, that our digital behaviour has a minimal impact on nature.”
