Amsterdam Economic Board

Focus: Future energy system, responsible digital society, building coalitions

The transition to a sustainable society is crucial for the future of this planet. We need systemic change in the way industries work and customers consume. The transition to a reliable, equitable, secure and carbon-free energy system is fundamental to this. In addition, our society is becoming increasingly digital and therefore increasingly complex. The energy transition and digital transition are closely linked: one cannot take place without the other.

Marjolein Bot wants to make a positive contribution to the transition to the energy system of the future and a responsible digital society. She is developing several coalitions with parties from business, academia, civil society organisations and governments. To make an impact, organisations must collaborate intensively. She is responsible for our Data Commons Collective initiative. Under Marjolein’s leadership, the LEAP initiative was established and scaled up to the Nationale Coalitie Duurzame Digitalisering (National Coalition for Sustainable Digitalisation) by the end of 2022.

Marjolein studied economics at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and worked at PwC, IBM Consulting, Deloitte and Shell. Here she focused particularly on transitions and organisational development.

“The challenge is to link social issues to the strengths of organisations. So they know and feel the solution lies in collaborating with others, without knowing exactly where it will end up… And to embrace that.”
