Inventing future

risk management

The industrial, digital and energy transitions, economic changes: the world is changing and with it the risk management professions are changing too.


The Group is adapting to this new situation and is continuing its transformation by offering its customers innovative service offerings combining technologies with historical know-how. Thanks to digital technology, for example, Apave allows its trainees to experience differentiating training courses with the help of virtual reality. The inspection and control professions are also undergoing their transformation, now using drones or artificial intelligence. For example, thanks to a unique solution in Europe, infrastructure (bridges, tunnels, etc.) and buildings can now be monitored in real time, thus enabling the risks of structural deformation to be anticipated.
