    Making the world greener

    We are aware of the importance of a greener world and our role in it. We recycle almost everything, generate our own energy and are connected to the geothermal network. In breeding, we focus on more disease resistance, which means that fewer crop protection products are needed.

KP Holland is committed to saving energy and the use of sustainable energy sources.

Saving energy

KP Holland focuses on saving energy and the use of sustainable energy sources. Like the Innovation Lab, our 7 cultivation locations are equipped with LED lighting. We get the necessary heat deep from the earth by means of geothermal heat. Finally, the 1068 solar panels provide for the energy needs during the day.

Recycling & packaging

We reduce and separate our waste and almost all residual flows are processed into new products. We prefer to introduce as little extra plastic as possible into society. Our policy is critical when it comes to packaging: the covers and trays are largely made of recycled material and 100% recyclable. If possible, we omit the packaging or replace it with paper or cardboard.

Sustainability Goals

Our ambition: to produce the highest achievable quality Kalanchoe, Spathiphyllum and Curcuma in a fully sustainable way. We want the impact on the environment to be minimized, residual streams to be given a second life and colleagues to flourish at KP Holland.

Current sleeves are often 100% recyclable, but not always made of 100% recycled material. Currently and recycling rates do not exceed above 97%.

Where are we now?
We are preparing step up to fully sustainable sleeves by 2025. In this, however, we are still dependent on product developments and availability.

Our next goal is to identify all residual streams and the extent of their recycling. After that, we wand to set an ambitious target for this as well. Will you help us formulate this objective, or to make it a reality? Then take a look at this vacancy.

Full water recirculation by 2027

How?
Capture, clean and reuse the water that is not used by the plant in the cultivation process.

We capture the rainwater that falls on our greenhouse decks and collect it in our basins. This allows us to supply our plants with the captured rainwater throughout the year.

Chemical-free growing in 2030

How?
By using stronger and more resistant genetics, deploying natural control agents such as predatory mites, improving biodiversity around the greenhouse and a clean working area.

Where are we now?
Introduction of the ‘5S-program’ at cultivation sites, focus research in Innovation Lab.

CO2 emissions to zero by 2040

How?
By investing in using more geothermal and solar power, wind power and hydrogen, we bring down CO2 emissions.

Where are we now?
Connection to Trias geothermal network & use of solar panels at all locations.
