Bastiaan Meuleman

Sustainable sourcing expert at Colruyt Group

After finishing my bachelor studies in Urban Planning at the Wageningen University in the Netherlands, I chose to follow my passion and expanded my knowledge by taking up the master Urban Environmental Management. During my 6 months Erasmus in Valencia and a research, concerning the interviewing of inhabitants regarding waste separation in Montpellier, I learned to live and work in another region and professionalized my French and Spanish.

My thesis and internship focused on technologies to treat waste (water), to gain valuable resources and reduce the impact of those streams on the environment. I learned to apply technologies, visions and trends in relation to waste (water) management, sustainable use and storage of energy and trafficm management.

After my graduation in 2014, I took a new challenge by moving to South America. My Erasmus experience contributed to my work in Spanish in Ayacucho, Peru, where I worked with local Peruvians guiding them as a wastewater expert in their daily struggle to minimize the impact on their beautiful country and on the other hand providing them with safe drinking water.

After my return to Belgium, I started working for the Belgian retailer (Colruyt Group) as a project manager in construction. After three years, it was time for something else and I seized the opportunity to start working on our environmental sourcing team. Since October 2018, I am responsible for the sustainability program for several product group such as soy in food. I am determined to give our customers an even higher choice in sustainablem products and set up chains with respect for all actors in it.
