ESG Frontrunners

Antwerp, Wednesday 28 February

CONCEPT

On February 28th, we marked the closure of our Jubilee year with the grand KICK OFF of 2024. Hosted within the chambers of the Antwerp Provincial Council, the event unfolded in two distinct acts. Firstly, we showed a first glimpse of our company video and our Impact Report.

Delving deeper, sessions on our PCA2030 trajectory, stakeholder engagement, and ESG initiatives aimed to spark inspiration amongst participants. Following this, the Province of Antwerp segment shone a spotlight on our collective commitment to sustainability initiatives.
