Our goal is to contribute to decision making on different levels, all with the ultimate aim of making the Netherlands and the rest of the world a better place to live.
This is quite a challenge, especially in times of economic recession and shrinking government budgets. PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency can only rise to this challenge by also appealing to the energy and innovative power present within our society. We hope to be able to inspire you in 2013 through our research, for instance our second trends report, the sequel to The Energetic Society. This edition’s topic is the sustainable development in relation to economic growth. We wish you happy holidays and an inspiring 2013!
