Good advice for Good purposes.

Seek dialogue and develop strategies to achieve environmental and social goals.

The Advisory Board advises the Foundation's management on issues of socio-political importance and supports the achievement of the 17 sustainability goals of the United Nations as well as dialogue with other social groups on environmental and social policy goals and strategies.

In addition to their technical expertise, the members of the advisory board bring one thing above all else to the Intalcon Foundation: the conviction and passion for enabling a dignified life on our earth while at the same time preserving the natural foundations of life in the long term.
