Recirculation

Boot&dart benefits from recirculation at their nursery by minimising water losses and reusing nutrients, resulting in a more efficient and sustainable growing process with lower operational costs. This provides a more stable environment for crops and reduces the risk of diseases and pests, improving quality and yield.

of our products

The quality of our products begins with the initial material, which is taken from our own mother plants. We specifically grow and breed new plants that offer solutions and have added value. Three criteria are leading here: the new plants must be healthy and strong, suitable for large scale management, and have an ornamental value. Throughout the entire cultivation and delivery process, every plant and tree is fully traceable. This guarantees vitality and authenticity.

Co2 performance ladder

Boot & Dart is actively working on its CO2 reduction. Using the CO2 Performance Ladder, Boot & Dart has gained insight into its CO2 emissions. The emission inventory was translated into our emission CO2 footprint.

From the emissions inventory, Boot & Dart has formulated a number of targets. Based on these targets, Boot & Dart aims to actively reduce its CO2 footprint. These objectives are included in the energy management action plan. Also available in our portfolio at Certificaathouders(skao.nl)

Below is the Report Emission Inventory

Boot & Dart is involved with a number of other organisations in various chain initiatives to reduce CO2.

The CO2 performance ladder is a standard to encourage companies to be CO2-conscious in their own operations and when carrying out projects. This mainly involves saving energy, using materials efficiently and using increasingly sustainable energy. More can be found at www.skao.nl

De CO2-prestatieladder is het instrument bij uitstek voor Boot & Dart om onze emissie-inventaris, of CO2-voetafdruk, te inventariseren, te streven naar reductie en dit actief te bereiken met belanghebbenden om ons heen. Dit wordt middels het certificaat onderstreept.

Through our internal and external communications (including via our website), we aim to periodically update everyone on our progress in reducing our CO2 emissions. You can contact us if you have any further questions regarding the CO2 Performance Ladder.
