My name is Evert Hagen (1967), born and raised in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Since my childhood I was interested and fascinated in the world of
garden design and landscaping and this has become a recurring theme in my life. In 1991 I finished my studies at the Agriculture and Horticulture.
In this period I have done at several renowned gardeners and garden designers and landscape architects study traineeships. After finishing my studies I took several specialist training and courses in the field of landscape architecture, culture, technology and management.
In 1991 (simultaneously with training and courses), I started my construction company in Garden Design, Gardening & Maintenance. In this period I have realized and designed many beautiful projects in cooperation with well-known Dutch landscape architects, architects and interior designers.
As of 2003, after many intense and busy years, I was ready for a new challenge and I decided to quit, partly due to the changing market in the field of sustainable development and innovation in the green sector in 2005.
Since 2005 to 2013 I went to work for the largest Dutch company and landscapers. In this period I have occupied myself especially with sustainable innovation in the green sector.
In 2001 I came into contact with sustainable development in the areas of water, green and energy. The subject fascinated me and I have studied it further.
As a result, I came into contact with BioNova. The product of BioNova intrigued me; purify pool water without the input of chlorine or chemicals. In addition to my active career, I have a seat in the technical committee for BioNova where I am primarily engaged in design, development, construction and realization.
I also studied the field of green roofs and vertical greenery, whether or not in combination with solar technology, and in the area of water storage for reuse.
New challenge, Portugal!
Portugal is a beautiful country, it has a beautiful culture and beautiful, but also a tumultuous history.
Since 1986, Portugal is one of the EU Member States; thus they will also have to concentrate on the subject of sustainability, given the stringent European legislation and regulations regarding the environment. I see this as a challenge and with my background, experience and expertise in the field of sustainability of water, green and energy, I like to seek cooperation, to create new opportunities, but especially to share knowledge with Portuguese entrepreneurs.
Eventualy It works out better for all us Humans and the Flora & Fauna "Environment".
"Let's make life better and healthier for us and our environment,
where sustainable solutions and luxury meet and unite."
