"We seek dialogue with you."

Our com­pa­ny is always on the move.

The blog is undoub­ted­ly among the most con­ve­ni­ent forms of modern com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. At Klasmann-Deilmann, we use our blog to sha­re our thoughts with our part­ners and fri­ends; custo­mers and sup­pliers; our active, for­mer and future employees; and (in the broa­dest sen­se) our sta­ke­hol­ders – in a time­ly man­ner and at an appro­pria­te inten­si­ty. And we’ve a lot to say. Our com­pa­ny is always on the move and we want you to be a part of this.

We look for­ward to your feed­back: do send us an e-mail or use our com­ments func­tion. We’ll also be gra­te­ful for any ide­as as to topics you’d be inte­rested in rea­ding about.

Car­bon foot­prints for indi­vi­du­al nur­se­ries and crops

18.06.2018 | Aut­hor: Jan Köb­bing | 0 Com­ments
Klasmann-Deilmann has deve­lo­ped a cal­cu­la­ting tool for deter­mi­ning the car­bon foot­print of a hor­ti­cul­tu­ral com­pa­ny. This mea­su­re dis­c­lo­ses not only emis­si­ons rela­ting to ener­gy con­sump­ti­on, seed, fer­ti­li­sers and pesti­ci­des, as well as packa­ging and gro­wing con­tai­ners, but also the pro­por­ti­on ari­sing from sub­stra­te use. The cal­cu­la­ting tool also con­verts a nursery’s emis­si­ons into a figu­re for a given cul­ti­va­ted crop. A num­ber of important fin­dings are pre­sen­ted here.  It was in 2013 that Klasmann-Deilmann first cal­cu­la­ted a cor­po­ra­te car­bon foot­print (CCF) that fac­tors in all emis­si­ons gene­ra­ted Read more
