Why BG-21?

Our website www.bg-21.com and our e-mail addresses contain a "bg-21". Why? For a practical and a philosophical reason. When BG launched its website, the domain name bg.com was already occupied. Therefore another name had to be found. We then decided to add the number 21. This is a reference to Agenda 21 - the ambitious action plan for the 21st century - adopted at the 1992 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio. The 21 is thus at the heart of our e-mail addresses, just as sustainable development is at the heart of BG's activities.
