Joost Wouters

Joost Wouters is an entrepreneur, speaker, and author. He started his professional career at Procter & Gamble in 1995. Later he joined the Management Team of Pepsi Cola Benelux. When his first son was born, Joost decided to quit his job and start a Management Consulting firm, so he could blend work and family life. Over the last 16 years, Joost worked with the leadership teams of large and small companies such as Danone, Unilever, Heineken and Reckitt Benckiser, in places all over the world.

In 2006 Joost and his family moved to Spain, where he built a house and Leadership Center at the Mediterranean. Ten years later, he returned to The Netherlands to continue his adventure and contribute to a liveable future for his kids and the generations to come. As SeaEO of The Seaweed Company he and his team aim to implement CO2-reducing seaweed-based business models at large scale.

The Seaweed Company

The Seaweed Company combines unique biological and technological expertise to integrate the seeding, growing, harvesting and processing of seaweed. As a result they are able to cultivate certified seaweed on a commercial scale at open sea, and produce seaweed in the quantities needed to fully benefit from large-scale CO2-reducing applications.

Without using any land, fresh water, or fertilizer.

At their concession in Ireland they have started a commercial seaweed site. This will be the first step towards achieving their goal to deliver CO2-reducing seaweed products and applications on a large scale.
