Together, we build
a sustainable future

SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGES

GLOBAL WARMING

  • With current trends we can expect an increase of +3,5 to +4,5°C by 2100 which is far from the 1,5°C target set in Paris*
  • An increase above 2°C means 2-3 times worse impact (floods, fire, storms, drough,...) than 1,5°C

PLASTIC WASTE

  • By 2050 the oceans will contain more plastic than fish. *
  • More than 8M Tons of plastic are leaked into Oceans every year.
  • 83% of tested tap water contain microplastic.**
