    Clément Maulavé


    After attending preparatory and business school, Clément Maulavé decided to dive into the challenges of technical apparel in the surfing and ski industries. To that end, he took advantage of a gap year to get training in Annecy and then spent 6 months in Bangalore, India in an apparel workshop. In 2016, while he was still at university, Clément and his friend Mathieu started working on a project to create a clothing brand, in which all products would be made from recycled materials. In early 2017, their brand Hopaal was born. Once the business plan had been deemed viable, they set up a team. In 2019, the objectives will be to manage production, activate communication and marketing, develop their approach and be increasingly transparent on all actions Hopaal carries out.

    Pierre Philippe has been the General Manager of the Vignerons de Buzet cooperative since 2005, after solid background and training in the wine and spirits industry. From the moment he set foot in the business, he integrated sustainable development as a driving force for the cooperative’s strategy to bring it towards an economically viable wine production that respects both Man and Nature. The Vignerons de Buzet have set themselves apart by committing to advanced protection of the environment for over ten years (reasoned wine production, ISO 14991 standards, AGRI CONFIANCE, IFS, HVE, etc.) and for having adopted the ISO 26 000 standard on Corporate Social Responsibility in businesses.
