MVO Nederland Introduces the New Economy Index (NEx)



New Economy Index: 12.1% of the Dutch economy is sustainable; the target for 2025 is 20%.


12.1% of the Dutch economy is sustainable. That is the finding of a major research conducted on behalf of MVO Nederland, the movement for new economy entrepreneurs. The New Economy Index (NEx) is a score calculated annually – this year for the first time – showing the percentage of the Dutch economy and supply chain that is ‘new’, i.e. circular, climate-neutral and inclusive.


“The Netherlands needs a NEx of 20% in 2025 to reach a turning point where the sustainability of the economy accelerates and there’s no way back to the old economy. A NEx of 12.1% in 2020 confirms a solid start. But Dutch businesses need to do much more,” says Maria van der Heijden, director of MVO Nederland.
