The elho group has been awarded with the B Corporation certification. Certified B Corporations™ are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. They meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

“Doing good has been in the DNA of elho for many years. The elho group feels a strong responsibility to always do good across our total global supply chain, with nature and people in mind. That is the reason we were eager to become a Certified B Corporation,” stated Olaf Elderenbosch, CEO of the elho group. “We feel it is our responsibility to continue to develop and contribute to a greener world and connect as many people as possible with nature.”

At elho, 100% of the production process runs on its own wind energy and in 2020, eight million kilograms of recycled plastic waste was converted into plant pots. The elho group is continuously improving production techniques and exploring all possibilities to be able to produce the full collection with 100% recycled plastics. With the ambition to become a 100% circular company it aims for zero CO2 emissions.

“We’re really happy to see that more and more people prefer to work for companies, like elho, that are meaningful, make real a impact and contribute to a better world,” according to HR manager, Engeline Brekelmans.
