Valobat's team and organization:

The experience of the building world, waste management and eco-organizations at the service of your challenges

In July 2021, Valobat announced its ambitions, shared by its 28 founding members: to get out of the "extract, manufacture, consume and throw away" scheme, to contribute to make eco-design and circular economy a reality in the building industry, and thus help to avoid situations of illegal dumping.

Depuis le déploiement de cette nouvelle filière REP, Valobat est aujourd’hui en ordre de marche. Après s’être dotée d’une équipe de consultants expérimentés pour structurer l’éco-organisme, ses processus et ses outils, pour être prêt, dans les délais fixés par le calendrier, dès la constitution de la société et pour prendre le relais, Valobat a procédé au recrutement de son comité de direction dont les membres disposent des expertises relatives au secteur du bâtiment, de la gestion des déchets et des éco-organismes et des fonctions support.
