July 2023. Summer beckons. In Belgium, holidays are just around the corner. We pack our suitcases to climb to the roof of the world (Tibet), explore the Jordanian rock city of Petra or admire the standing stones of Stonehenge. We rarely dwell on it, but someone, once upon a time, had to take the initiative to build those structures. Someone paved the way.
Society also needs a pioneer: someone who knows how to map out the way to sustainable solutions to challenges. In 2022, we used the words 'pioneering spirit' and 'trailblazer' more than once. And not just for the sake of it. We have showed how we fulfilled that role in the past and how we continue to fulfil it today.
Last year, with our revamped strategic plan, we made the promise to be the ‘pioneer of 2040’. We take up the challenge in the fight against climate change and cancer, and we promise to be an experienced guide in sustainable dismantling.
