On 1 November 2021, Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte delivered a speech at COP-26 in Glasgow, Scotland. He stressed the history of the Netherlands in “battling the elements for centuries. From North Sea floods to Caribbean storms” (GoN, 2021). He further stated that “(climate) adaptation is in our DNA” and stressed that sustainability innovations carry economic opportunities. He finished the speech with a statement that the world “can count on the Kingdom of the Netherlands”, in other words, that the Netherlands is open for business.
