We gather the right skills from the member companies, which carry out environmental monitoring, analyze, interpret new requirements and laws, solve complex tasks and work out a joint solution that is applicable to all member companies.
In this way, we effectively meet new requirements and changed regulations without burdening customers with increased costs. The member companies save time and resources while also being able to take advantage of another member company's knowledge and expertise.
The economies of scale give the member companies a better financial condition to continue to be close to the customers - with local markets and their own headquarters.
