After 10 years of Leaders for Nature, it is time to take the next step.

Welcome to an intensified partnership.


Join us in 2016 & beyond
As from 2016, IUCN NL is taking the next step in business engagement. We are moving from a membership-based network towards long-term individual partnerships between IUCN NL and your company. 



To achieve the most impact, we'd like to meet your company at the place where it all comes together: the landscape. That's where you source your resources. That's where you directly impact natural capital. And that's where IUCN NL is active with a network of partner organizations that are well rooted in the local context.

Our goal

To ensure that your company's operations contribute to healthier ecosystems in your sourcing countries, generating benefits for business, nature and the local people that depend on it.

Our offer


Individual partnerships

Together we follow your company's value chain all the way down to the landscape level. There, with the inclusion of all stakeholders, we explore options to have less impact on the landscape and make your operations contribute to healthier ecosystems, ensuring the longterm delivery of the resources on which your business depends.


Sectoral summit tables

During full day work sessions, well-prepared with you in advance, we'll work in a multi-stakeholder setting on preserving and benefiting from the natural capital in the landscape where your sector operates.


Heart in business sessions

Motivation from the heart is the best starting point for action. To anchor sustainability in your company, the connectedness with nature needs to be revived. We'll bring nature back into your heart with reflective, professionally moderated sessions and outdoor experiences in areas of natural beauty.
