Experts in Sustainable Solutions
Sustainability sells, but where to begin? When you’re willing to take the leap into sustainability, you soon get lost in the jungle of environmental impact. What is exactly the environmental impact of your company and how do you calculate that so-called footprint? But first and foremost, what do all these terms actually mean?
What Is the Footprint?
Your company is part of the agricultural and/or horticultural sector. Whether you work at a nursery, supply potting soil or manufacture packaging: your business activities have an impact on the environment. This impact is also referred to as the footprint. Calculating a footprint quantifies sustainability. It provides insight into how sustainable your company and your products are and is the starting point for making your entire organization, processes, and products more sustainable.

Footprint Calculation at Koppert Cress
“We now really know where the most impact is”
When it comes to sustainability in agriculture and horticulture, the name of Koppert Cress is never far away. The Westland company specializes in cresses: micro-vegetables with a unique taste experience. In 2002 the company was taken over by Rob Baan. He radically changed course. Sustainability and marketing became spearheads. And with success. The company grew at lightning speed into an internationally renowned partner for chefs, caterers, hotels, and restaurants all over the world. Koppert Cress is constantly looking for improvement, both in the product range and in the field of sustainability. To be able to optimize the latter pillar, even more, Koppert Cress asked Greenhouse Marketeers to calculate the footprint of the entire company. And the results of those calculations were surprising.
