Who we are and what we do
Klasmann-Deilmann is the leading corporate group in the international substrate industry, with numerous sales and production companies in Europe, Asia and America, and a network of sales and production partners on every continent. Everywhere, our growing media provide a vital basis for the growth of fruit, vegetables, edible mushrooms, herbs, ornamental plants, trees and shrubs. They help ensure the success of our partners and customers in the commercial horticulture sector and are an integral part of the food sector value chain.
Our product portfolio includes substrates for professional growers and the consumer sector, white and black peat as raw materials – both our own resources and externally sourced – as well as wood fibre, green compost, coir and perlite – both manufactured in-house and produced by partner companies which whom we are closely affiliated. We also distribute the Growcoon propagation system, establish ourselves as a provider of digital solutions for growers with the online platform Log & Solve, and supply peat moss to accelerate peatland restoration.
In the renewable-energy sector, we distribute regenerative raw materials. Our raw wood materials produced on our own short-rotation coppice (SRC) plantations contribute to the supply of climate-friendly energy, especially in the Baltic region.
We share in the collective responsibility for humankind, the environment and future generations. And we refer to internationally recognised benchmarks to gauge how seriously we take this. Regeling Handels Potgronden (RHP) monitors our raw materials and production processes. Our quality-management system is certified to the ISO 9001 standard and our environmental-management system adheres to ISO 14001. We manage our peat extraction areas in compliance with Responsibly Produced Peat (RPP) guidelines. We rehabilitate former extraction sites in compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements, chiefly by means of re-wetting. We have our carbon footprint verified to the ISO 14064 standard and we prepare our Sustainability Report in line with the Global Reporting Initiative’s GRI Standards 2016.
The strategic focus of our company, a medium-sized family business, is extremely forward-looking. Keen to remain the most successful and sustainable producer of growing media, we are single-mindedly building on the lead we have in the development and use of renewable resources, ground-breaking substrate blends and innovative solutions for commercial horticulture.
In all of our activities, our employees are a foundational asset. Time and again, their expertise and commitment play a crucial role in moving us forward in terms of corporate sustainability and customer satisfaction. We encourage their development and are delighted by their strong ties with our organisation.
