MOTIVATION FOR AND COMMITMENT TO CREATING A BETTER AND MORE SUSTAINABLE PLANET 

I have always been conscious both personnally and through my work, that each and everyone of us needs to do his/her part to preserve the environment otherwise the planet that we will leave for our children will not be the one that we currently know. At work, all the small actions count. As an accountant, I know both from a cost and environmental perspective, that we should use less paper. I therefore try to avoid printing and try to ensure that others do the same. Our company is producing chemical products, which is a big polluant in general, but we use recycled products and we try and reduce our clients consumption as much as possible in offering closed stripping systems. We are very conscious of the environment and we try and help as much as possible.

Currently, a good portion of our clients use stripping tanks to strip metal. Our project consist of trying to recuperate the stripping residus from our client's stripping systems and being able to treat them in order to recuperate the chemical products and mud and try to find a way to reuse them both in different ways.
