We are committed to sustainable agriculture following the 20/30 Agenda

SUSTAINABLE

SUSTAINABLE
BY NATURE

Our core business is breeding, an activity that is environmentally and socially sustainable by definition. It helps fight climate change, reduce soil degradation and prevent biodiversity loss, among other things.

Planasa’s research is focused on developing plant varieties that:

Are more resistant to air and soil diseases so they need less chemicals.

Are better adapted to climate change or use water more efficiently.

Make better use of soil resources.

Widen production windows, promote local trade and reduce carbon footprint.

Breeding also helps improving the quality of fresh produce, satisfying
consumers’ demands and therefore reducing food loss and waste.

INNOVATION IN PLANTVARIETIES

We are using new technologies in our processes to ensure that our varieties and our plants are able to produce in the most sustainable way, optimising the use of natural resources.

REDUCING OUR
CARBON FOOTPRINT

In 2020 we launched Planasa’s green bottle project. This has enabled us to reduce the use of plastic by more than 1,500 kg per year. For each kilo of plastic produced from scratch about 3.5 kg of CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere. With this project we have saved more than 5,000 kg of CO2 in one year, which is equivalent to the emissions of a diesel car driving around the earth almost 5 times.
