As a winner of the Local Round, Iris will now compete in the Global Round along with candidates for the title of 2022 United Nations Global Compact SDG Pioneers.

Linda van Beek, Executive Director at Global Compact Network Netherlands, motivates their choice by saying: “Our external panel of high level experts were very positive about Iris’ nomination and praised her innovativeness. She translated the SDGs into practical goals that are measurable and tangible whilst engaging with several stakeholders. EMMA Safety Footwear already incorporates the SDGs but it is very impressive how she has managed such a higher positive impact of her company on circularity and climate. We congratulate Iris with this title, it is a recognition of her great work and we believe she will be a role model for other professionals working for companies.
