Fair and long-term partnerships are also really sustainable. You go faster alone, but you get farther together. Honesty is the best policy. Say what you mean, and do what you say. We grow 5% of our green houseplants in Costa Rica. The warm climate there is ideal for realising ‘specialties’. As it allows us to add these special plants to our already extensive assortment, we are grateful for being able to use the warmth and high light intensity of Costa Rica. And we can keep on surprising our customers!
Implementing sustainability: we do it at Plantanious not because we have to, but because we can! What could be more important than a healthy future for everyone? That is why we love supporting the environment and striving for a better world. We are committed to sustainability in the broadest sense of the word, and we keep a close watch on developments. After all, one green turn deserves another! Our striving to be ever more sustainable is evident not only in the innovative technology we employ, it can be seen in the way we enter into partnerships.
Plantanious works and produces in a completely climate-neutral manner. We make use of geothermal energy, and are linked to the geothermal energy project ‘Nature’s Heat’. Our greenhouse is heated entirely by a heat source accessed 2.5 km under the ground. This means that our greenhouse is heated without any CO2 emissions, still a unique feature in the horticultural sector. And we are justifiably proud of that!
The roofs of our company are fitted with 735 solar panels, and soon we shall install several hundred more in a nearby meadow. With the help of the sun, we generate as much power as we need to run the business. Which means we are self-sufficient when it comes to our electricity supply. This makes our plants greener again!
