About the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging

Increasingly more entrepreneurs want to work with sustainable packaging, because they see the importance and the opportunities of a circular economy for packaging material. That is why the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging advises and inspires companies with tailor-made advice. We offer entrepreneurs factual knowledge and practical tools, based on applied scientific research, current trends and knowledge of the packaging chain.

Organizational structure

The KIDV consists of a board of governors, an Advisory Board and the KIDV office. The board of governors consists of representatives of the national government, the industry and municipalities under the leadership of an independent chair. The Advisory Board consists of representatives of materials organizations, waste processing companies, environmental organizations, the scientific community, industry and national government.

The KIDV is funded by the Packaging Waste Fund to the tune of two million euros per annum for a period of ten years. The funds are generated by Packaging Waste Management Contributions. The board of governors manages this budget. The KIDV reports on its activities and results every year in its annual report and annual statement of accounts, which are published on this site.
