As sustainable transformation expert at Antwerp Management School, he focuses socio-economic development in harmony with nature. Via master classes, research and the facilitation of two think tanks he strengthens sustainability commitments within organizations.
His career began in the chemical industry, reducing emissions and energy usage, optimizing water and waste streams, and managing sustainability projects.
