Green Business Club (GBC) Zuidas is an impact organization with more than 70 participants that focuses on concrete results by initiating sustainable projects. GBC Zuidas is an independent foundation set up in 2011 by -among others- ABN AMRO, ORAM and Zuidas – municipality of Amsterdam.

GBC Zuidas participants are companies based in Zuidas who share the ambition of making it the most sustainable area to live and work in the Netherlands. Large and small businesses, government and knowledge institutes come together in the Energy, Mobility and Logistics, People, Water & Green and Waste & Circularity teams to develop projects and exchange best practices. They each use their own expertise to inspire and help each other within these pillars. This has resulted in a very divers, lively and committed network of professionals who have one common goal: to make both the area and their own operations more sustainable.
