DGB GROUP NOMINATES NEW BOARD MEMBERS MR MAPPIN AND MS KUDRENOK-MAPPIN

Dutch Green Business Group N.V. (“DGB”) is delighted to announce a new chapter in our great Dutch public company which was first founded in 1957.

After careful consideration of the strategic, economic and financial aspects for all stakeholders involved, the board believes that long-term value creation for shareholders is better safeguarded when DGB remains a public company with activities in the sustainable sector. 

Mr. Logtenberg is stepping down as a non-executive director of DGB Group with effect from today.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Logtenberg for his just guidance and for his great integrity that he has demonstrated, which has placed DGB in a strong position to realise the potentials of a great future.”

Today DGB announces its involvement in the task and goal of global reforestation, nature preservation, ecosystem restoration and advanced energy compensation services.

DGB is also delighted to announce the appointment of Mr John Mappin and Mrs Irina Kudrenok-Mappin as Chairman and director of the Supervisory board. John Mappin and Irina Kudrenok-Mappin will join the new CEO Selwyn Duijvestijn as principals in the advancement of DGB, in alignment with the dynamic green purpose of the company.

The next shareholders meeting will be announced soon.

Mr Mappin stated the following:

We are all honoured to have the opportunity to be of service to DGB in our respective roles, the scale of global reforestation that needs to be undertaken in the coming years is almost unimaginable but it represents an exciting opportunity for the capital markets and for private individuals.

Those who solve the very practical and real challenges of man’s symbiosis and relationship with trees and whom additionally harness free market forces and the access to capital needed to rapidly accelerate the reforestation of earth, will not only resolve one of the last remaining barriers to our survival here, restoring balance to continued life on earth, but will act in great service to all life and to the Creator.

This is our endeavour.” John Mappin.

Bio John Mappin

John Mappin is a private businessman.  

John with his wife Irina, alongside good friends in Washington DC was one of the primary champions of the Presidential Trillion Tree Global reforestation initiative that was announced in Davos, Switzerland on 21st January 2020.

John wanted to design an instrument that would both be of the people and for the people, that would help to accelerate the reforestation of earth and that would allow the optimum leverage of private and institutional capital to augment that purpose.

In the summer of 1985, John first glimpsed the potential of creating a financial instrument to assist global reforestation and the restoration of our woodlands. Dutch Green Business Group NV represents the potential of that idea.
