“We’ve grown strongly since our inception. The opportunity to bring Simply Sustainable to new markets has been an ambition for some time and I’m delighted to be opening our first international base in Amsterdam,” said Nicola Stopps, founder en chief executive officer of Simply Sustainable.

Stopps said that the consulting firm picked Amsterdam for its key hub feature in Western Europe (“Amsterdam is a gateway area to Europe due to its strategic location between Europe’s largest economies”), the proximity to the United Kingdom, and for its credentials of being “one of the most sustainable cities” in the world.

Leading the new office is newly appointed Country Manager Sytze Dijkstra, who has joined the firm externally from Accenture, where he spent nine years focused on sustainability research and thought leadership, and advised multiple companies across sectors on strategies for accelerating the transition to sustainable business practices.

Earlier in his career, Dijkstra held development and research roles at a Dutch energy research house and worked as a consultant at a boutique environmental consultancy.
