Who am I?
In the end, only those businesses that achieve the right balance between ‘People, Planet and Profit’ will remain viable.
That’s something I can safely say, based on my experience with implementing and auditing cleaner production programmes and ISO care systems (environment, safety, food safety and quality). And it’s something that I have done with both SMEs and multinationals, in Belgium and abroad.
In everything I do, I always seek to achieve maximum added value for and in consultation with the client.
What do I do in my spare time? Travelling has been part of my life since I was young, as has sport.
El mundo da muchas vueltas"
As environment coordinator and prevention adviser, I help companies to develop their policy on Environment, Health & Safety (EHS). I coach workers, deal with environmental permit applications and develop care systems. My EHS experience extends across various sectors: chemical, pharmaceuticals, food, metalworking, woodworking and waste processing.
You can also come to me for REACH coordination, determining your carbon footprint and analysing the lifecycle of products.
