The path to growth
leads back to nature
The environment is a key-element of Thrace Greenhouses' value system. By protecting it, we ensure superior quality of the produce we offer our consumers. This is the rewarding feeling that keeps us going.
Good Agricultural Practices
Hydroponics is one of the most advanced & environmentally-friendly cultivation methods in practice, while the renewable geothermal energy meets 100% of the heating requirements.
Integrated Management System
We apply sustainable management methods of our natural resources, achieving certified quality of vegetables at every stage.
Zero Carbon Footprint
Thanks to geothermal energy which requires no fuel, our greenhouses not only emit no CO2, but actively generate oxygen due to the photosynthetic process of plants.
Management of water resources
Hydroponics allows us to conserve up to 60% more water than traditional farming methods. The recirculation of both water and mineral nutrient solution also help us reduce production costs and environmental impact.
The use of insect pollinators ensures premium quality and hormone free produce.
Plant waste management
Rather than burning plant debris from our greenhouses or disposing it into the environment, we make it available to local farmers as supplementary feed for their livestock.
≈ Zero CO2 emissions
By studying our carbon footprint, at each stage of the life cycle of each of our products separately, we are able to better understand the importance of sustainable management of our resources, awaken our people, our partners and our consumers, while we are constantly improving.
In 2022 we proceeded with the study of the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), a validated declaration that transparently communicates the environmental impact of any product or material during every stage of its life cycle, through measurable, reliable and comparable environmental indicators.
* The EPD studies were developed according to the ISO 14025 and were based on the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) study prepared for our company, according to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044.
EPDs and LCAs were verified and published by the International EPD System
The following comparative analysis, is a powerful tool for understanding and reducing our impact on global warming. At the same time, the EMI-CERT certification proves that our products have almost 0 (zero) CO2 emissions (carbon neutral) and that’s why they are not only good for us but also for the environment.
