Sustainability

Working together on sustainability prepares us for the future. We are committed to making the sector more sustainable so that we can all be successful in the long term. We cannot do this alone. It is something we must do in collaboration with our growers, buyers and other partners.

Our sustainability ambitions in the areas of environment and society:

A trusted marketplace

Our growers work hard to deliver beautiful, high-quality products. Products that are grown with great respect for people and the environment. We want to demonstrate this in a credible way while continuing to work on innovations and improvements.

Read about the several initiatives

Circularity of raw materials

We are working together with various partners on a responsible and simplified plastics chain. We are taking a critical look at the design, use, residual flow and new applications of single-use packaging.

WE ENSURE AS LITTLE WASTE AS POSSIBLE

Minimal CO2 emissions

We use 100% green (certified) electricity and solar energy and are connected to a geothermal heat source. We will continue to investigate how we can reduce energy and heat consumption in all our operations.

HOW do WE MINIMISe OUR CO2 FOOTPRINT

By encouraging green innovations together

A liveable, green society is our ultimate goal. We do this by working with partners on a variety of programmes and by creating a healthy working environment for our employees.

Digital environmental registration and certification

Digital environmental registration and environmental certification provide verifiable proof of our efforts in terms of sustainability. Evidence of this type is increasingly being demanded by both the government and consumers. Sustainability is, after all, essential for our future. The future of our growers, our cooperative, our sector and the world. As a cooperative, we want to help our growers achieve sustainability. That's why we encourage our members and help them obtain certification to demonstrate how sustainably they are already working.
