The Supervisory Board inspires and supports the Board of Directors in policy-making and checks whether it keeps an eye on the interests of the foundation in relation to its social function, in carrying out its management tasks. In particular, it ensures that the implementation of the management policy is in line with the established 10-year plan of Circular Biobased Delta.
The Supervisory Board consists of representatives of the government (the provinces of Zuid-Holland, Zeeland and Noord-Brabant) and of knowledge centres and the business community: Wageningen University, TNO and the Centre of Expertise Biobased Economy, Cargill, Sabic, RWE, Cosun and, since recently, Rabobank, respectively.
Chairman of the Supervisory Board Jo-Annes de Bat, member of the Provincial Executive for Zeeland: “I and the other members of the Supervisory Board are pleased that a representative of a financial institution has joined us. We have had a good relationship with Rabobank for some time now.”
Chairman of the Board Willem Sederel: “Because of their roots in the agricultural sector and as drivers of innovations, all Rabobanks in West Brabant and Zeeland have closely followed and supported the developments within the Circular Biobased Delta. By joining the Supervisory Board, this bond has now been formalised.”
Wibo van Hekken, Chairman of the Executive Board of Rabobank Breda: “As Rabobank, we believe that you should strive to ‘grow a better world together’. An active contribution to the Circular Biobased Delta fits in with that. We are looking forward to the efforts of our members, customers and employees to help the Circular Biobased Delta achieve its ambitious targets.”
