Founded, in 1974, CEPA, the European Pest Management Solutions Professional Association reunites 65 national associations and international companies along the whole pest management chain in 23 European countries. CEPA primarily represents the European Pest Management service sector which is made up fundamentally of a network of European SMEs with an enormous economic growth potential. Our mission as a service sector is to contribute to the protection and assure the wellbeing of EU citizens in the context of Smart, Sustainable, Healthy Cities. We work with a broad range of key actors in local society from local communities and manufacturing to catering, hospital, retail services, business and political institutions. With the background of climate change and its implications for a more complicated management of growing cities and suburbs, assuring tangible sustainable solutions for the well-being of citizens is more relevant and challenging than ever.
