Netherlands Vattenfall/Nuon is participating in the pride activities on the Amsterdam Gay Pride event this summer.

Nuon will participate through all sorts of activities like a stand at an information market, events, and with a Nuon boat in the Canal Parade. The Canal Parade on 6 August is the highlight of the two-week event, dubbed EuroPride given the EU presidency of the Netherlands.

"By joining the Canal Parade we show that we are an integral part of society. We listen to each other and to the people around us and make sure you can be yourself in the Netherlands and within Vattenfall”, says Martijn Hagens, Head of BA Customers & Solutions at Vattenfall and COO of Nuon.

Arjan te Wierik, Diversity & Inclusion Expert at Nuon, says participating in the Europride is just one of many ways to show that diversity is important to the company.

"By taking part in the parade, we emphasize the importance of diversity and inclusiveness, and show that we are against any form of discrimination."
