On 5 April 2018 the Treaties of Nijmegen Medal was awarded to Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever. He received this in recognition of his contributions, on a national and an international scale, for a greener and more sustainable living environment.
Following the award ceremony, Polman gave the Treaties of Nijmegen address.
‘..trust is what binds any society together.
Business has to step-up. It cannot be a bystander in a system that gives it life in the first place.
People rightfully expect business to be an agent of change.’
