About Rainbow Growers
Within the entire production chain, Rainbow Growers are working to produce the least amount of waste, reduce our gas usage and decrease our CO2 emissions continuously.
We’re proud of the successes we’ve achieved when it comes to sustainability. In the past ten years, we’ve reduced our CO2 emissions by a whopping 77%. We’ve achieved this by reducing our gas usage significantly, even though the acreage of our greenhouses has only increased in the same period. Our most recently built greenhouse in Middenmeer, doesn’t use any gas at all! It’s completely heated via geothermic energy.
Besides the important social issue of sustainability, Rainbow Growers also focuses on the welfare of their employees. Safety, good working conditions and sustainable employability are very important within the organization. “The engagement and commitment, but most of all, the enormous amount of responsibility taken by our employees are what made Rainbow Growers what it is today”, director Peter Steentjes explains. “This is what will continue to improve our organization looking into the future.”
