Greenhouse Sustainability (formerly Greenhouse Marketeers)
Greenhouse Sustainability is playing an important role in helping businesses in the horticulture sector reduce their carbon footprint and improve sustainability performance. Through carbon footprint assessments, consultancy and storytelling, Greenhouse Sustainability helps businesses identify areas for improvement, implement sustainable practices that reduce their impact on the environment and share their story.
What is Greenhouse Sustainability?
Greenhouse Sustainability is a Dutch organization that helps businesses in the horticulture sector reduce their carbon footprint and improve sustainability performance. The organization offers a range of services, including carbon footprint assessments, emission reduction consultancy and offsetting investment projects. Through these services, Greenhouse Sustainability helps businesses to identify areas for improvement and implement sustainable practices that reduce their impact on the environment.
Greenhouse Sustainability works closely with growers, retailers, and other stakeholders in the horticulture industry to identify and implement sustainable practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize the use of non-renewable resources. Their primary focus is on greenhouse production, which is a particularly energy-intensive sector due to the need for heating, lighting, and other equipment.
How does Greenhouse Sustainability help businesses with their footprint?
One of the main ways that Greenhouse Sustainability helps businesses reduce their carbon footprint is through carbon footprint assessments. These assessments measure the greenhouse gas emissions associated with a business’s operations, including energy use, transportation, and waste management. The assessments provide businesses with a detailed understanding of their carbon footprint and identify opportunities for reducing emissions. Greenhouse Sustainability can also provide guidance on setting targets for emission reductions and developing action plans to achieve these targets.
Since sustainability has become a hot topic, Greenhouse Sustainability is also offering storytelling services to their customers. This way the organization translates customer’s sustainability efforts into visuals for their relations to see.
A Carbon Calculator for a sustainable future
One of the notable achievements of Greenhouse Sustainability is the development of the Carbon Calculator, which is a tool that enables greenhouse growers to calculate their carbon footprint and identify areas where they can reduce emissions. The tool takes into account factors such as energy consumption, transportation, and waste management, and provides growers with recommendations for reducing emissions and improving their sustainability performance.
Greenhouse Sustainability also works closely with retailers and other stakeholders in the horticulture industry to promote sustainable practices and raise awareness about the importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This includes participating in industry events, producing educational resources, and engaging with consumers to promote sustainable purchasing decisions.
Reducing the Carbon Footprint of the Horticulture Industry
In recent years, the horticulture industry has faced increasing pressure to reduce its environmental impact and adopt more sustainable practices. Greenhouse Sustainability has emerged as a leader in this area, providing growers with the tools and support they need to become more environmentally responsible and improve their sustainability performance. As consumers become more conscious of the environmental impact of the products they buy, the work of Greenhouse Sustainability will become even more important in promoting sustainable production practices and reducing the carbon footprint of the horticulture industry.
