PlanetProof/Milieukeur is an environmental quality label for sustainable vegetables, fruit, plants, trees and flower bulbs. By meeting the PlanetProof quality requirements, farmers and growers help to improve air and water quality, get more fertile soils and they can improve the environmental conditions on their farms.
The farms will be inspected twice per year by an independent certification body. The PlanetProof criteria are reviewed every year and adjusted when necessary.
The goal is to optimize the balance between the farm and the environment and reduce the impact on the planet. We are on the way to PlanetProof!
PlanetProof certified farmers and growers also contribute to achieving some of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
- Production and Consumption
- Soil, Landscape and BiodiversityMilieukeur applies an integrated approach to sustainable farming, whereby the balance between the various sustainability themes is carefully monitored. The Milieukeur criteria are based on the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of a product or service.
- 'On the way to PlanetProof' is the international name for Milieukeur Plant products; PlanetProof's sustainability criteria are fully identical to those of Milieukeur. As of 1-1-2019, Milieukeur for Plant products will be replaced by PlanetProof.
