AbbVie, the biopharmaceutical company based in Wavre, has joined forces with “Wavre in transition”, a citizens’ movement committed to making the local environment more sustainable at every level.
On 13 June 2019, 41 employees of AbbVie took part in a #trashchallenge in the streets of Wavre. Divided into small groups of walkers and runners, the employees left AbbVie to collect as much litter as possible in a morning.
This campaign was part of the “Week of possibilities”, a voluntary programme set up by AbbVie to invite staff to give of their working time to become involved with the local communities. These activities enable staff to share a community experience whilst having a positive impact on society.

The following companies, members of essenscia, took part in the #trashchallenge 2019: AbbVie, Certech, Dow Silicones, Höganäs Belgique, Kaneka Eurogentec, McBride, SGS Life Sciences, UCB, UCB Pharma and Yara Tertre.
