Liveable planet

Becoming more sustainable together means we, as a floriculture sector, must help shape the energy transition. We are determined to bring our activities and needs to within the limits of a liveable world.

CO₂ reduction and climate

kWe are making progress in terms of energy savings, sustainable energy sources and CO2 reduction. We are also working on an integrated climate plan. In addition, we have committed to the 'Energy Transition Covenant Greenhouse Horticulture 2022-2030': the floriculture sector aims to be climate-neutral by 2040.

Circularity

We aim to use only circular raw materials, generate as little waste as possible, and curb the waste of raw materials. That is why we use sustainable and circular building materials and techniques as much as possible in the development and construction of business space. We are also working to increase our use of sustainable transport packaging, including for flowers and plants. Additionally, we are working with product committees (FPCs) to make product packaging more sustainable.

Biodiversity

Biodiversity is crucial for the preservation of our planet. No other life should be at risk for the cultivation of plants and flowers – such as those of pollinators and other beneficial insects.

We endorse and uphold this in line with the United Nations Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and the 2030 EU Biodiversity Strategy. We ourselves take initiatives to design the green spaces and flowering borders on and around our hubs to be as biodiverse as possible, promote liveable, green cities and green communities, and participate in initiatives such as Deltaplan Biodiversity Restoration.
