SUSTAINABILITY MISSION Our sustainable dream for 2030 To realise our sustainability dream – Royal Lemkes delivering ‘positive plants’ by 2030 – we need to continue to inspire and motivate not only our colleagues, suppliers, customers and NGOs but also the government, fellow competitors and other sector partners. We do this in various ways. We work with our customers to develop sustainability roadmaps and publish white papers on topics such as plastic use and potting soil. We also organise roundtable sessions and workshops with our growers on various issues, including substrate, packaging, plastic reduction and footprinting. And we inform and inspire our stakeholders through various channels.
