The most sustainable partner in the flower industry

We aim to be climate neutral by 2030 and that is why we started to fully analyze our carbon footprint in 2019. We do this for all our products and operations in cooperation with Ecochain through Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). It is important for us to know our impact on the environment as it will give direction for future product development and will provide us with insights in what ways we can help our customers with their sustainability goals. Now we can improve where it really matters. This is how we want to be the most sustainable partner in the flower industry.

 

Carbon footprint

The calculations showed that our operations count for only 3.4% of our carbon footprint in 2019 and that 96.6% is coming from our suppliers. We already use green (wind) energy, solar panels, LED lighting and have invested in energy reduction. But with our carbon footprint fully analyzed, we are ready to take action to reduce our footprint even further. That is where we can make an impact. We will reduce and improve our sourcing impact, production waste, utilities and packaging materials. We are also actively looking for ways to make our collaborations with our business partners more sustainable.

Our targets

In order to become climate neutral by 2030 we will focus on:

Zero emissions

  • Reducing our CO2 emissions
  • Increasing energy efficiency
  • Using sustainable energy sources

Transport

  • Contributing to innovative transport
  • Enabling smart mobility

To achieve this we have set ourselves the following targets:

  1. Zero carbon footprint by 2025.
  2. Reduce energy consumption by 25% by 2030.
  3. Reduce our sourcing impact with 25% by 2025.
  4. 100% renewable energy internationally by 2025.
  5. Reduce our CO2 emissions by 25% in outbound transport by 2025.
  6. Full international roll-out of Ecochain by the end of 2022.
  7. Full end-of-life footprint calculations per product group by 2022.

One of our targets has already been completed:

  1. 100% of products have an LCA on CO2 emissions.
