Office CPC

CPC was founded in the early 90s by Henk Kinds to contribute to the development of civil society, in which cooperation with businesses and government always played an important role. CPC was a pioneer in involving companies in social issues and in actively involving citizens in public issues.

From 2016, this has mainly focused on public-private cooperation around the prevention of problematic debts and financial resilience. In the Salland region, CPC developed with more than 35 partner organizations de Sallandse Dialoog. Ondertussen heeft het model zich landelijk ontwikkeld onder de naam Moedige Dialoog.  Vanaf 2018 ontwikkelt ook een serie projecten rond  inclusief werkgeverschap met een actief kennis platform op en rond het leer-werk bedrijf Campus Woudhuis  in Apeldoorn.

In late 2016, Wouter Hijweege, with his international project experience in knowledge management and network learning, joined CPC. Wouter developed a new international portfolio of projects and consultancy work. Recent examples of these CPC projects include socio-economic studies and project evaluations; action learning trajectories for stakeholder engagement in Suriname's energy company. As of 2019, Wouter is leading CPC and Henk Kinds is working part-time as a consultant.

The vision of CPC is to contribute to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals and specifically to:

  • Active social and environmental company policies so that they can have a strong relevance in local communities with their services and for their employees (SDG 1, 8, 10, 11)
