Tesselaar Alstroemeria finds it important to make a positive contribution to society. We do this by being a good employer, having consultations with the community in which we work and taking measures to improve our impact on the environment.
Since 2016, Tesselaar has calculated its footprint annually using the EcoChain application. With this we show which measures we take to decrease the use of crop protection, use less gas, electricity and water et cetera. In 2016 the CO₂ emmisions per stamp was 310 gram. In 2018 this is decreased to 260 gram for each stamp, a good progression!
Our new variety Mistral (white) will be delivered with total compensation of the CO₂. At the end of the year we will compensate the CO₂ of the production by contributing to foundation Trees for All.
