With respect for nature

We operate with the utmost respect for the environment. Our vision of fostering nature is implemented at various levels within our strategy and our day-to-day operations.

Sowing the seeds of a healthier future
Greenyard is committed to reducing the environmental impact of all its activities along the supply chain, including production, storage, logistics and transportation.

This mission translates into action in four action areas:

1. We use our resources in a considered and sustainable way
2. We take the necessary measures to avoid pollution
3. We take preventive and corrective measures in case of accidents
4. We use responsibly sourced raw materials
1 / We use our resources in a considered and sustainable way
Greenyard’s vision in terms of Sustainable Development translates into the managed use of resources. We monitor, measure and implement the actions needed to continually reduce our energy (electricity, fuel) and water consumption.
Breakdown of emissions
Avoid pollution
2 / We take the necessary measures to avoid pollution
Greenyard manages waste and pollution risks in line with its environmental policy and the principles set out in ISO 14001:2015. We take preventive measures in relation to waste generation and set targets every year. The percentage of recyclable waste is increasing year on year (2013: 31%; 2016: 41.3%).

All staff members are made aware of our environmental objectives and trained accordingly.

Our packaging is correctly marked, enabling our customers to sort their waste appropriately.
3 / We take preventive and corrective measures in case of accidents
We put preventive measures in place and take corrective action. We carry out systematic and documented analysis of the risks associated with our activities. Action plans are implemented and followed up for each aspect (Quality, Safety and Environment).
Prevention
Renewable raw materials
4 / We use responsibly sourced raw materials
Manufacturing a quality product starts with carefully selected raw materials. This is why Greenyard manages a large quantity of its raw materials itself. We also strive to use as many local and renewable resources as possible.

Greenyard records the percentage of renewable raw materials used in its growing media. Targets are set every year and we aim to increase the percentage year after year.

With our R&D department, we aim to design products that can reduce the environmental impact of cultivation. We are working on innovative concepts to produce plants, fruit and vegetables that are tastier, healthier and – above all – sustainable.
