    Year: 2020

    The Shift is the Belgian meeting point for sustainability. Their challenge consists of an analysis of all available tools that provide a good and validated measure of the ecological footprint of small and medium-sized enterprises in Belgium. Departing from that measurement, organisations should know on which areas to focus to reduce their impact on the climate.

  • Duurzaam Incasso

    Area: Strategy
    Year: 2020

    Duurzaam Incasso aims to develop a sustainable strategy offered by companies that enables consumers to pay their bills. Our team pursued a market research to find out which demographics do not pay and, most importantly, why. By doing so, they helped constitute a sustainable strategy.

    I appreciated the strong professionalism, strong collaboration and open, constructive and positive communication.

    Area: Financial Sustainability
    Year: 2020

    t' Lampeke is a Leuven-based NGO focusing on socially-vulnerable people. Our team conducted a financial analysis to investigate - and eventually determine - sustainable financial resources.

    Warm, refreshing cooperation (even in corona-times). Nice, empathetic people.

    I improved my soft and hard skills at the numerous workshops and I had some amazing team members to grow with during the project.
  • WWF

    Area: Technical
    Year: 2021

    WWF Belgium is the Belgian branch of an international organization working on nature conservation and protecting the climate. They raise awareness on these issues but also influence public policy and conduct research. In order to manage numerous projects at the same time and maintain an overview, they need an appropriate monitoring system. The project is to come up with concrete, hands-on proposals for an appropriate tool for the national programs.

    I enjoyed the opportunity to create valua for a non-pfroit while learning soft skills and meeting a lof of interesting, new people.
