The Ecopole is a new business park offering 150 hectares of land equipped to host companies, create jobs and added value in line with the philosophy of sustainable development.
By remediating and redeveloping this site, the objective was to ensure harmonious and balanced economic and urban development. Particular attention has been paid to its development (green spaces, bicycle paths, natural areas, etc.) in order to make it a real place to live and to integrate it as well as possible into its environment.
With excellent accessibility - direct acces to high speed road network and to waterway, ten minutes from Brussels South Charleroi Airport, the Ecopole offers modular plots of all sizes.
It will host companies but also research and training centres. Negotiations are already underway with local and foreign companies. For example, Ecoterres (DEME Group) will bring its activities together in a new infrastructure.
To create a ripple effect, IGRETEC will build a first building on the site, an important symbolic marker for companies likely to set up there. This project is intended to be innovative, in addition to the choice of techniques based on renewable energies, the materials used will necessarily have to meet environmental criteria.
This project is born thanks to a European co-financing.
150 hectares (370 acres)
Focused on the philosophy of sustainable development, the Ecopole will welcome companies that integrate its principles into their products, services, manufacturing processes, buildings and organizational methods.
