Sustainable Industries and Services

Location: Utrecht, Netherlands

Edgar van de Brug (M.Sc.) is a managing consultant at Ecofys since early 2007 and works for the Service Line Sustainable Industries and Services. He focuses on the creation of sustainable value for the corporate sector through the development and implementation of energy efficiency, renewable energy and carbon abatement roadmaps and strategies. An example of this work is the support to companies that want to become a WWF Climate Saver. Such companies need to set and implement ambitious targets to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions within their own company and full value chain. Edgar has supported many companies successfully in such a trajectory. He has ample experience with calculating and validating environmental footprints of organisations and products according to international standards, identifying and quantifying carbon abatement measures, calculating avoided emissions of products and services along the value chain, benchmarking environmental performance of companies and setting and implementing ambitious reduction targets.

Through his technical management studies background and broad project management experience he is very well positioned to support companies in realizing their targets while keeping the broader organizational context in focus. Clients whom he supported with their corporate energy and carbon strategies include: Electrolux, Yingli, Vanke, Novelis, Tetra Pak, SKF, H&M, Miele, Volvo Trucks, Alliander, Proximus, Bpost, Boortmalt, Lidl Belgium, Danone, Mars, Alpro, the LEGO Group, Philips, Canon, Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Deutsche Post DHL Group, Delta Lloyd, UniCredit Group, Rabobank, Eneco, Stedin, Enexis, the Dutch Freshdrinks, Waters and Juices (FWS) sector, Telcel (America Movil), Vodafone Turkey, International Post Corporation (IPC), International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), WBCSD Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI), Dutch Chemical Industry (VNCI), Port of Rotterdam Authority, UNEP Inquiry, S&P, and EIB. Before joining Ecofys, Edgar worked in advisory and (project)management positions for TNT Post B.V. and Business Minds B.V.
