Celieplant is the link between growers of house and garden plants in the retail sector, especially major European supermarket chains and recently outside of Europe too. Our two new sustainable commercial premises can be found at Green Park Aalsmeer, which is located next to the world’s largest plant and flower auction, Royal FloraHolland.
We buy from our growers and ensure that the plants reach shop shelves in perfect condition. The customised solutions we supply are based on many years’ experience and a thorough knowledge of the market.
In close collaboration with our customers, plant suppliers and breeders, we indicate trends and turn them into innovative, attractive products.
But there’s more than that. As a major company in the green sector, we are very aware of our ecological responsibility. In 2014, we put our first sustainably built business premises into use and in 2018, we purchased the second. With these new buildings, our ambition to become the front runner in the field of green entrepreneurship has become a reality. To us, sustainability isn’t a marketing buzzword, but an everyday reality. Sustainability is second nature to us. Read more about ecologically responsible entrepreneurship in About Celieplant.
Thick walls and a solid concrete roof enable us to save a great deal of energy, as is usually necessary for heating and cooling. Our electricity supply largely comes from the 2000 solar panels on the roof. Every year, they supply over 520,000 kilowatt hours of green energy, which is equivalent to the annual consumption of 200 households.
A smart, digitised logistics process doesn’t just optimise our schedule and thereby our service, but also keeps costs low and limits our CO2 emissions..
Concrete, a 100% recyclable building material, was chosen for the construction of our new building. Our waste is separated and recycled where possible. Waste water from flowers from the auction is purified and used to flush the toilets. Our flower buckets are filled with filtered rainwater.
