Sustainability is at the core of our strategy and purpose
People, Planet and Products – These are the three perspectives from which we approach sustainability to achieve our ultimate target to improve our net positive impact every year, which means that we constantly want to contribute more to the world than we take from it.
The climate crisis, the loss of biodiversity, the ecosystem decline, the growing population and the increased need for food are challenges we have identified as those we can have the biggest impact on. These societal developments will bring both challenges as well as opportunities to this sector and to our business. Read more >
A lean governance structure
Kekkilä-BVB Leadership Team is responsible for the successful execution of our sustainability work and the roadmap. This ensures that sustainability is integrated within the business and that ambitions are carried by the different business units and functions we have in the organisation. All employees of Kekkilä-BVB have relevant sustainability targets on their yearly targets. Through the involvement of all our colleagues whether in procurement, operations, HR, sales or another department we make it happen. Kekkilä-BVB Sustainability Director and Sustainability Manager make sure that sustainability ambitions fit with market needs and developments and manage progress on our targets.
The three focus areas of our sustainability roadmap take both the environmental, social, and business aspects of sustainability into account.
Collaboration is the key
We create growing media solutions to enable sustainable development. The only way to decrease our net impact is through collaboration with customers and partners in the value chain. In sustainability, there are no competitors, there are only partners with whom you can grow together for a better tomorrow.
We’re working with more than 50 collaborators throughout the value chain of growing to build joint knowledge and encourage ecosystem thinking. Our innovations contribute to sustainable solutions for food production, gardening and landscaping.
