About us

The Association “The Environment Engineering Group” was founded in 2005 by engineers, students, lawyers, young people and a bit elderly who care about the environment.

 

The members have been joined due to the mutual vision of better and healthier future in which the environment would be respected and not exploited and destroyed. The members work on the contribution to the development of ecological conscience, preservation and improvement of the environment.
