Dimitri Torfs was invited at the annual meeting of CIFAL Global Network in the Palace of Nations in Geneva.
Dimitri is our Sales/ Business Developer and also member of the Management Committee of Blue Gate Antwerp Development, which is the developer behind our eco-effective waterbound business park: Blue Gate Antwerp.
Bopro and BGAD have been awarded with the SDG Pioneer Certificate of Completion in the past and are now working in partnership with UNITAR | CIFAL Flanders on the next phase of the PCA2030 Trajectory.
SDG Pioneers are individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to the advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Their work aligns with the global effort to achieve a more sustainable and equitable future.
Dimitri had the opportunity to explain to Mr. Nikhil Seth (Assistant Secretary-General, Executive Director of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research – UNITAR), Mr. Alex Meija (Head of CIFAL Global Network) and the present CIFAL centers that BGAD, as a land developer, aims having a positive impact on environmental, economic and social challenges.
To this end, Blue Gate Antwerp seeks a harmonious balance between the 5Ps: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership.
The strategy deployed to achieve this is based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. Bopro – the sustainability director within this project – translated the global goals on an organizational level so BGAD can contribute positively within a larger, holistic framework.
