"Water in all its facets is becoming crucial for the future, and the impact of the increasing number of floods and droughts on our land is forcing us to conduct additional and continuous research," explains Frank De Palmenaer, CEO of ABO-Group Environment. "Sustainable water management is crucial to ensure that current and future generations can continue to use this vital natural resource. With the acquisition of Eau & Perspectives, we intend to build a new hydrology department within our environmental branch."

Current director and expert hydrogeologist, Patrick Champagne, will remain at the head of the company during the transition phase. "I was looking for a suitable partner to transfer my knowledge, experience and expertise. In ABO-Group, I see a qualitative partner with a similar corporate culture that will not only continue our business operations, but also further shape the expansion of the agency I created," Patrick says.
