What they say
Manager, Industrial Environment Division
Advising our industrial clients is always a pleasure for us as engineers. We revel in the contact with our clients and fellow stakeholders and we take great pleasure in analysing processes and proposing ways of managing risks and environmental issues. Our first industrial project dates from 1987, but we still work tirelessly and continuously to reap the fruits of our industrial culture and incorporate changing practices and the evolving regulatory context.
Manager, Regions and Environment Department
We are fortunate to be able to travel the length and breadth of the regions in France in the course of the assignments entrusted to us. Obviously, we view the places we visit through the trained eyes of urban planning professionals and compilers of environmental assessments on different projects. But for us it is also always a pleasure to meet the stakeholders in the regions, whose commitment commands our respect and who we endeavour to guide and assist in their desire to show their authority/organisation or company in the best light by means of a harmonious development which incorporates the sustainable in the management work they accomplish every day.
Manager, Waste Management Department
When we observe the way waste management has changed over the last 10 years, and we understand the challenges that face us going forward, we draw enormous satisfaction and a great sense of ambition from our profession. The theme of waste is revealing of the reality in our regions in many respects. That allows us to remain aware and invested in the environmental significance, but also the economic and social importance of waste management. Ensuring those aspects remain at the heart of our assignments is an ambition which can only enhance the standards of quality we aim to achieve in our work.
