Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Kwekerij Wouters has a close sense of involvement with its immediate surroundings and the environment as a whole. Sustainable growth is a high priority for us, with ongoing respect and regard for people, society and the environment.

 

People
During weekends and school holidays we give young people in the neighbourhood an opportunity to gain work experience. We show them what the job involves and do our best to enthuse them about the horticultural sector. We also offer students challenging trainee posts in the green sector.

 

Environment
Kwekerij Wouters has used a wood-burning stove since 2009. This installation provides 80% of the heat required for the 20 hectares of greenhouses adjacent to Enserweg. Prunings and trimmings are used as fuel. Before we acquired the wood-burning stove these used to be composted. Waste wood from the council tip is also burned in the wood-burning stove. The big advantage of burning the wood is that the energy it contains is put to good use. To check the ‘greenness’ of our activities, exhaust gases are continuously measured and monitored online by the government.

 

The remaining 20% of the heating requirement for our greenhouses is generated by our own WKK (combined heat and power installation) which runs on gas. The WKK generates electricity, and the heat released in the process is channelled to the greenhouses. The electricity is sold to power companies. Our WKK generates enough electricity to meet the needs of Ens and Kraggenburg.

 

Society
Kwekerij Wouters sponsors a number of local and national causes, including several sports teams in the village. Kwekerij Wouters is responsible for ensuring that the flower boxes in the village look beautiful all year round. For many years now we have been a sponsor of the ‘Ride for the Roses’, the proceeds of which go to KWF Kanker Bestrijding (KWF Fight against Cancer). A number of Wouters employees also take part in this annual cycling event.
