The European Union has set ambitious goals in order to prevent the dangers of climate change. While the target for 2030 includes cutting greenhouse emissions by 40 percent, European companies will need to produce 20 percent less greenhouse gases already by 2020 to stay on track.
For the horticulture business this means opportunities and challenges. Driven by regulation and consumer demand, growers and landscapers who manage to meet or exceed the climate goals are sure to emerge as winners.
