The offices at Willaert are optimally insulated. Timers and sensors prevent lights from being lit unnecessarily.
All of the rain water is gathered in a 11,000m2 large basin. Moreover, the residual water of the sprinkling system and the rain water on the pavement of the cash & carry department is recycled.
Paper, cardboard, PMC waste, foils, plant trays, metal, wood and batteries are separately collected and processed by professional recycling companies. The plant remains are processed into compost.
Willaert uses eco-friendly and long-life packaging, CC trolleys, wooden pallets and boxes, iron boxes and reusable crates.
A well-organized logistical system takes care of an optimal usage of the fleet to avoid unnecessary routes and travelling times. All of our trucks comply with the euro 6 standard.
Stationery, envelopes, catalogues, and so on, everything is printed on FSC-certified paper. Additionally, all of the invoices are digitally processed and catalogues are only printed on demand.
Recently, a 8-metre-large plant border with bee- and butterfly-friendly plants has been constructed around the Willaert site and carpark.
A large part of the aquatic plants is produced and delivered in biodegradable P7 pots.
