“The environment has been my main concern since 1994. During these 25 years, I have had the opportunity to be in the legislative, executive, civil society and business sectors, although they seem to be different sectors in everything. I have carried out activities related to the environment.”
These activities range from the realization of projects and programs, consultancies, courses, studies and in the last 3 years the manufacture, sale and installation of green walls. We have formed the company Organi-K ISSA that consists of two areas: environmental consultancies and vertical gardens or green walls. We provide environmental solutions. Currently I specialize in Integrated Solid Waste Management.
