NAG Segment meetings "Environmental footprint SME"

The NAG would like to invite you to the segment meetings with the theme “Environmental Footprint SME” on October 14th, 2021 from 13:00 – 17.15. For the newcomers among you: During segment meetings we offer you the opportunity to discuss current topics with colleagues within your own segment (Airport Development & Infrastructure, Aircraft Manufacturing or Aircraft Maintenance).

In order to maintain the leading Dutch role in the aerospace & airport development industry, it is necessary to connect with new technologies. The innovative input of High Tech SMEs plays an important role in this, with the focus on unlimited products and services portfpolio. In contrary to large compagnies, these SMEs do not have specialized teams and adequate budget to next to optimal their performance. This includes providing insight into value streams, using better materials and energy-efficient processes, and reducing and recycling waste streams.

In addition to the benefits for the environment, this results in the longer term in a lower cost price and a better competitive position. When SMEs start working together, exchanging best practices and work as a collective on solutions, investments go down and can help the necessary reduction of the environmental footprint.

The event is about our view on sustainability in the aerospace sector. We want to look at the decision making process and the overlap in the financial decision making/ financial risk both for operations and investments. And eventually; What will be the next steps?
