In 2022 FlorAccess will compensate 100% of CO2 emissions from transport.

And we don’t stop there.

Nature is important. We’ll do what we can do to help minimise the impact. For all of us.

This is why we have decided to compensate for all our CO2 emissions caused by transport. This includes the transport from the growers to our logistics center, and to our clients. We expect to compensate for more than 100 Megatonnes of CO2 in 2022.

To offset these emissions we have partnered with ClimatePartner. You can see what we have done so far on our Tracking ID. This will be updated every quarter.

Together we compensate - to benefit others and nature

The project we have chosen provides clean cookstoves in Nyungwe, Rwanda. At the moment people are using open fires for cooking. This uses a lot of firewood which puts pressure on the unique rainforests in the surrounding.

The stoves will only use a third of the fuel of the open fires. This means a cut in carbon emissions and lowered pressure on the ecosystem. The stoves are offered at a subsidized price so low-income households can afford them.

Since women are usually responsible for the fire, they and their children benefit particularly from the project.

Nature is not all about CO2. There are more ways we help moving forward.

We are minimizing plant waste because we do not keep our own stock. All plants stay at the growers until an order is placed. At other wholesalers it is normal to have around 10% of the plants go to waste because they are not sold on time.

Where we can, we partner with transporters who deliver with electric vehicles. We already have two of these partners and are actively looking for more.

This year we increased our assortment of plastic free products. At the same time we try to lower the amount of plastic used in our logistic center. We are experimenting with wrapping which is 50% biobased and thinner. This way we use less plastic.

All of this is just a start. We will keep expanding until we have become a carbon neutral company. Also we have appointed Esther Allers as our new head of sustainability. She will set out to maximise what we as a company can do for the environment.

Our sustainability goals for 2021:

Offer 100% CO2 neutral transport to all our clients

Minimize plastic packaging both in our distribution hub and from the growers

Expand our assortment of plastic free, peat free and bio products

Receive a certification (ISO or other) for our carbon footprint calculation

This is what we’re planning for 2022 and beyond:

Expand the carbon footprint to include all FlorAccess practices. Develop an emission reduction strategy to lower the carbon footprint

Develop a strategy aimed to carbon neutrality

Work together with growers to lower the carbon footprint of the products
