Climate change and footprint reduction -
Environmental impact
Climate change is a key material topic for all Greenyard’s stakeholders. While we know that a good biodiversity and healthy soil are important, our business relies on different interconnected topics. Respecting nature’s complexity and value, we acknowledge that the food sector is operating beyond planetary boundaries. Even though fruit and vegetables have a relatively small footprint, it is still our duty to reduce our footprint and embrace our responsibility. Our Fork-to-Field approach connects all stakeholders in our value chain and enables a resilient, environmentally friendly business that benefits society and, in the end, nature as well.
Climate change & footprint reduction
Today’s consumers expect all year-round availability of their favourite fruit and vegetables. Greenyard has built a strong worldwide network of growers and suppliers. We have been working with most of these growers for a very long time. We team up with them and provide them with feedback, resulting in a steady supply of high-quality products for our customers.
Water stewardship
While Greenyard primarily focusses on internal water use, the availability of fresh water throughout our value chain is equally essential for the cultivation of fruit and vegetables.
Food waste & circular economy
Greenyard focusses on avoidable food waste and is committed to reduce all avoidable food waste to a minimum.

Sustainable agriculture
All of the approximately 2,6 million tonnes of fruit and vegetables Greenyard sources worldwide each year, are compliant with regulatory requirements in the EU and the country of origin.
