Our Company

Environmentally friendly factories and offices

Our long-term strategy Marathon 2022 sets out our ambition for renewable energy: Vreugdenhil wants to achieve climate-neutral production by 2029. This is a major challenge, but taking the lead gives us a competitive edge and helps us reduce our environmental impact. In 2020, as part of the ongoing strategy process, we evaluated this objective.

There are solar panels on the roofs of all our branches, which annually supply 1.3 million kWh of green electricity. This is sufficient power for about 450 households per year. In 2020, the yield was approximately 465,000 kWh, resulting in a saving of 258 tonnes of CO₂.
