A Step Towards a Greener and Healthier Urban Landscape

We are thrilled to share that, with the Green Cables project, we have successfully greened our facade! This project not only enhances the aesthetics of our building but also contributes to a healthier and more sustainable urban environment.

Benefits of a Green Facade

By greening our facade, we achieve several important benefits:

  • Improved Air Quality: The plants on our facade help filter pollutants from the air and produce oxygen, resulting in healthier air quality around our building.
  • Reduction of Heat Stress: Green facades absorb less heat than traditional building materials. This means they help lower the temperature in the immediate surroundings, which is particularly beneficial during hot periods.
  • Enhancement of the Urban Landscape: Our green facade contributes to a more beautiful and attractive streetscape, positively affecting the mood of both passersby and our employees.

Native Climbing Plants: Sustainable and Biodiverse

We specifically chose native climbing plants. These plants are perfectly adapted to our local climate and soil, meaning they require less maintenance and are more resistant to diseases. Additionally, they promote local biodiversity by providing a habitat for native insects and birds.

How We Did It

The realization of our green facade involved several steps:

  1. Design and Planning: In collaboration with an experienced landscape architect, we developed a design that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
  2. Facade Preparation: We installed climbing supports and an efficient irrigation system to give the plants the best start.
  3. Planting: We carefully selected native climbing plants, which now cover our facade with lush greenery. Now, they just need to grow!
  4. Maintenance and Monitoring: Our gardener, Van der Mee & Jansen Hoveniers, provides regular maintenance and monitoring to ensure the plants remain healthy and can grow optimally.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

This project is an important step in our ongoing commitment to sustainability. We believe that businesses play a crucial role in creating a more sustainable future, and we are determined to do our part. By investing in green infrastructure, we hope to set an example for other companies and organizations. Our next step is installing solar panels.

Thanks to Our Partners!

For this greening project, we were supported by several partners, to whom we express our great appreciation! Thanks to the Province of South Holland (Executive Council) for subsidizing the Green Cables project, Stichting Greendustrie (Hugo Kranenberg), and the Green Business Club Fascinatio (Vincent Dellebeke and Denise Fransen) for their guidance on the project, and De Verticale Tuinman for their quick and professional execution!

Together, we can make a difference and work towards a greener, healthier future for everyone.
