Remembrance on Laszlo Vagdalt

It is with great sadness that I have to announce passing of Laszlo Vagdalt, our valued member of board and deputy chairman. On February 15, Laszlo at the age of 44 had to leave this world for which he has been fighting with all his personal and professional power.

Laszlo graduated from the Forestry Highschool in Sopron as environmental and energy management engineer. After working for Rába, Laszlo spearheaded projects as a person responsible for environment and sustainability at AUDI in Györ.

Laszlo Vagdalt was President of KÖVET between 2005-2013. At at the same time, he supported INEM in developing its structures and international projects for environment protection in economic frameworks. Laszlo had a great talent to match environmental and economic needs and in many cases he acted as a relator of multifaceted stakeholder situations.  Since 2005 he served in the INEM board and was the elected deputy of the chairman. We lost a valuable friend and supporter.

Our thoughts are with his family. God may let him rest in peace.

Ludwig Karg, Chairman
