Creating a more beautiful world with plants. That is what lies at the heart of our strategy. In 2017, Royal Lemkes supplied almost 97 million plants to 2,600 stores in 30 countries across Europe. We also reduced our CO2 emissions by more than 65% and saved up to 40,000 road kilometres.
Michiel de Haan, managing director of Royal Lemkes: “We look back on a successful 2017 filled with many unforgettable moments: intensified collaboration with our retail partners and suppliers, the supply logistics project, our nomination for the Horticultural Entrepreneur Award and 7,000 cyclists at Royal Lemkes for the Ride for the Roses. We expect a healthy increase in revenue in 2018 and shall continue to invest in our people, in sustainability and in IT. But, above all, we shall keep investing in our relationships, not least because this year our annual theme is ‘smarter together’.”
Royal Lemkes is now more than ever steering the course of a green connector. We believe in the power of plants. Plants do not only improve people’s lives and our customer’s businesses, but they also play a vital role in making the world a greener place.
Let’s plantify® the future. Together.
