The Netherlands is one of the best places in the world for startups and companies working on green technology.

Controlling the climate is deeply rooted in Dutch culture. With nearly a third of its land below sea level, the country has adapted very well to environmental challenges and found ways to turn them into opportunities for technological growth.

Consider, for example, how the Dutch managed to reclaim land from the sea poldersor prevent flooding from the North Sea with the construction of the Delta Worksa series of dams and storm surge barriers along the southwest coast.

However, the environmental performance of the Netherlands extends far beyond the management of water systems. One element that is often overlooked is the country’s huge agricultural industry.

Despite being the 131st largest country in the world, it is the 4th largest exporter of vegetables. This is due in large part to its investment and pioneering research in modern greenhouse horticulturewhich combines hydroponic technology and geothermal energy.

However, there is more that the country plans to create 16% of all energy consumed sustainable by 2023 – and it’s already home to one of the largest offshore wind farms and floating solar energy parks in Europe.
