Pure People, Pure Orchids
The name GreenBalanZ symbolises the green nature of our company. Traditionally, we have always been forward-looking and innovative when it comes to sustainability. We have earned our reputation as a leader in this field. In 2014, our aspirations and commitment culminated in the introduction of the first, fully-organic Phalaenopsis orchids to the market.
Besides this commitment, our central focus is on people, internally and externally: people power and eco-friendly orchids. Pure People, Pure Orchids says it all!
As a GreenBalanZ company, we consume substantially less natural gas than our fellow growers. This is the result of our ‘greenhouse without gas’ principle. In a nutshell, this means that we store excessive summer heat generated by the natural environment. During the winter, we utilise this storage buffer to heat the greenhouses. As a result, we need far less gas in the winter to create the proper indoor temperature. Consequently, our gas consumption has been reduced by 1.1 million cubic metres, which is equivalent to the consumption of more than 700 households per year!
Low carbon emission
With minimum consumption of gas, our carbon emissions are already relatively low. And we also extract the energy from these emissions, which we store to heat our nursery.
