Royal Lemkes

Royal Lemkes

Since 1882, Royal Lemkes has been a family business with a green heart and a beautiful mission: creating a pleasant life, a vital business and a more beautiful world with plants. These plants are supplied with the highest quality and at the lowest costs to large-scale retail chains throughout Europe. This means that a lot is transported and CO₂ emissions are caused.

CO2 compensation

Despite the fact that plants make the world more beautiful and greener, Royal Lemkes faces the challenge of reducing the CO₂ emissions released during, among other things, the transport of the plants. Royal Lemkes wants to make the entire chain, from grower to consumer, more sustainable. Since 2018, Royal Lemkes has been working with FairClimateFund to offset the remaining CO₂ emissions from business traffic. They do this with our biogas project in India. Since this year, Royal Lemkes has been compensating for business traffic as well as gas and electricity consumption.

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to taking action on the climate, Royal Lemkes has formulated five other sustainability themes that contribute to achieving the SDGs. FairClimateFund’s projects also contribute to achieving the SDGs in more aspects, for example by improving the position of women in developing countries. Managing Director, Michiel de Haan, indicates that Royal Lemkes continues to invest in people and sustainability, but especially in relationships. “Growing Together” is what Royal Lemkes strives for.
