MétaSus is an initiative of Bert Keesman who graduated as a Mechanical Engineer at the University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. The company serves as a platform to turn into reality the business potential of environmental improvements at an international scale. Thus the term: “Doubly Sustainable”: environmental care (planet) leads to business (profit). Bert has many years of experience in the implementation of cleaner production and Corporate Social Responsibility. For nine years he worked abroad (two years in Thailand, seven years in Costa Rica), getting to know export markets for Dutch clean technology from the inside.
