JEROEN PRINS, GROUP CONTROLLER, EPG
“As Group Controller, sustainability is important to my role. It is a topic which is close to my heart and connected to my previous work experience. I started working at Euro Pool Group in November 2022. As a relative newcomer, I see a company, which as part of its core business, is deeply committed to sustainability, and which is ready to take the next step to accelerate and facilitate the transition to a more circular economy.”
In 2022, we took meaningful steps to further integrate sustainability into our business reporting. For example, EPG decided to switch from biannual to quarterly internal CO2 reporting. This provides us with better and more meaningful insights into how we are performing against our carbon footprint reduction targets. In addition, we invited Ernst & Young to conduct a limited pre-assurance review of our C02 data. As part of this review, we received valuable recommendations for process, controls, and governance, which are currently being implemented.
