The ultimate responsibility of Follow This rests with the management team (MT), which is based in Amsterdam: the founder/director and the manager finance and operations are in charge of the day-to-day management of the organization. The members of the MT are Mark van Baal (founder/director) and Maarten van de Weijer (manager F&O).
The MT is supported by a manager of research and resolutions who is responsible for expanding the research competence of Follow This and for the process of filing Follow This climate resolutions at annual general meetings of shareholders of big oil and gas companies.
The transition to a flexible, knowledge-driven, durably and reliably funded organization will take place in the second half of 2020. In concrete terms, we will focus on fundraising, communication, planning and control, human resources, volunteer management, and membership administration.
Follow This began as a volunteer group, and we were born of their engagement. The commitment and professionalism of the volunteers who support the Follow This ambition makes us who we are, and future results will be achieved thanks to their dedication. They will remain vital to reaching our joint goal. The MT engages with them and encourages them, and is committed to full respectful participation with them.
