Behind the tissue: Sébastien Franck, Team leader WEPA Lille

I love nature and the feeling of freedom. During my last stay in the Alps, I discovered “mushing”. It’s a sport where Nordic dogs are yoked either to a sled or, if there is no snow, a cart. Once back home, I adopted a dog, and then another... now I’m up to six dogs.

As part of the health week the company organises every year, I got to share my passion with my colleagues and we tried out CaniCross (a sport where runner and dog are connected by a leash). It’s these happy moments together which underline WEPA’s familiar attitude.

Since I spend a lot of time in nature, eco-friendliness is especially dear to me. Global warning jeopardises my day-to-day activities. I’m proud to work at WEPA, especially when I see the progress made bit by bit through innovations and measures to protect the environment. For me, it is vital that we all do our part to preserve our planet and to create a better world for our children.
