You don’t just become the best for no reason. It’s takes a great many things to achieve that. Of course you need hard work, a positive attitude and the right people. But also a keen eye for innovation and genuine love and care for our people and our environment. Lugt Lisianthus combines all these things so that we’re able to deliver maximum quality, while having minimal impact to our surroundings. In fact, we go beyond just reducing our carbon footprint and actually improve the environment wherever we can.
As soon as we started building our new facilities in Monster we took into account all the different ways in which we could make a difference. We help keep the Westland dry for example, by participating in the RainLevlr programme initiated by the Water Board Delfland.
All our flowers are grown according to the principles of ‘Het Nieuwe Telen’, a method of growing flowers with as little waste as possible. And all the CO2 we produce is used as food for our flowers. We actually buy more CO2 from other companies, lowering their output of harmful gasses as well.
And it’s not just the environment we care for at Lugt Lisianthus. We look after our people too. All our machines, paths and spaces have been engineered for ease of use and accessibility. And wherever we could, we chose the option that reduced the workload the most. For example, nearly 3000 of the lights in our greenhouses are led. This saves energy of course, but it also makes for a greenhouse that is more comfortable to work in.
