How to feed the world in 2050?
In 2050, the earth's population will be 9 billion, 70% of
whom will be living in urban areas. This growing urban
population will need access to healthy and nutritious food.
Governments and Non-Governmental Organizations
(NGO's) are promoting fresh food consumption for health
reasons along with the importance of producing safe food
that is sustainably grown. In parallel consumers are
becoming more health-conscious and are increasingly
driven to local, natural, and sustainable quality offerings —
a trend which is strongly tied to the modern focus on
healthy eating. It is estimated that we will have to produce
double the amount of healthy, nutritious food with half the
resources of today. This leaves us with one of today's
biggest challenges. Water, fertilisers, land and energy are
crucial resources for food production. Less than 1% of the
earth's fresh water is easily available and suitable for
human use. 70% of that water is used for irrigation in
agriculture. Water scarcity is addressed as part of the
United Nations "Agenda 2030" Sustainable Development
Goals. Reserves of fertilisers, that are crucial for the
production of food, are running out. Continuous and
increasing demand on land resources has had a negative
impact on the area and quality of land available for food
production. So, food production has to double while using
half of the resources of today.
“Food production has to double while using half of the
resources of today”
Our roots in sustainable growing
Grodan supplies innovative and sustainable growing
media solutions for professional growers and home
gardeners. For almost 50 years our team has been
dedicated to creating the optimal environment for
roots resulting in healthy and strong plants. We are
driven by developing the most sustainable growing
solutions and by making these accessible to
communities across the globe. This is our contribution
to a future-proof horticulture that will provide people
around the world with access to healthy food not only
today but for generations to come.
Our growing media solutions are designed for Precision
Growing, which is the most sustainable way of growing.
This is all about giving the plant exactly what it needs.
This effective way of growing leads to a better yield and
quality of fresh produce while at the same time using
valuable resources in the most efficient way. As such
Grodan brings the best of sustainability together,
facilitating an efficient way of producing nutritious food
to keep people healthy, with a positive impact on the
planet by minimising the use of resources, whilst at the
same time helping growers optimise their profit to
sustain their businesses in the future.
“Achieve sustainable food production for future
generations”
EU Ecolabel: the guarantee of
sustainability
In 2008, Grodan was the first stone wool
growing media manufacturer to be
awarded the European Ecolabel, the EU’s
seal of approval for non-food products. This
demonstrates that Grodan products
comply with the European environmental
criteria for growing media of mineral
origin, such as stone wool. Grodan
products comply with the specific
demands of the EU Ecolabel as follows:
• The Ecolabel for Grodan growing media
applies to its use in professional
horticulture.
• Product pH, test method EN 13037
(using nutrient solution): pH 6.0 – 6.5
• Product EC, test method EN 13038: 10-25

These sustainable growing practices and compliance with
Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) ensure that
greenhouses have limited environmental impact.
Plants are grown in Grodan rockwool roots, (The
manufacturing of GRODAN products is certified according
to ISO 14001 standards) and we can feed them water and
nutrients.
Growing hydroponically in this material means our plants
can stretch their nutrients directly where they need it – on
their roots – rather than on their leaves or on other parts of
the soil. Greenhouses help us to create the proper
environment by providing our plants with the perfect
temperature, humidity and the optimal amount of water,
they are able to put all of their energy toward producing
great tasting vegetables and fruits.
Additionally, because less energy is spent on survival and
fighting adverse environmental conditions, greenhouse
produce typically has higher nutrient contents and yields
than field-grown vegetables. Even with computer
controlled irrigation and temperature, Mother Nature is
still active in our greenhouse ecosystem.
Bumblebees fly around to pollinate the plants and rather
than pesticides, we use a program called Integrated Pest
Management where ‘good bugs’ (such as lady bugs) prey
on ‘bad bugs.’ Additionally, we’re able to use a fraction of
the land and water that traditional farming requires with
high yields and by sterilizing and re-circulating our run-off
water.
Product Responsibility
DKG Group has committed to publicly share its views
on the principles that are the foundation for product
safety legislation or regulation. Consistent with our
commitment to the principles, we support the
development of responsible, science-based laws,
regulations, standards, practices and procedures that
safeguard the community, workplace and environment.
DRIKA Farm (member of DKG Group) and all of our
clients embrace a strong commitment to growing
sustainable products by applying Good Agricultural
Practices (G.A.P) in order to increase the quality, the
taste and quantity of their crops, and to promote safe
and efficient working practice.
Apart, each of our client's products has the ability to
trace the history, use or location of a product by means
of registered identifications that is vital for consumer’s
safety.

RECYCLING Source: ROCKWOOL Group Twitter
We place a high priority on sustainable business. As part of
this we set up a professional (country-specific) recycling
service for our clients. This service is designed to
guarantee that used stone wool products are recycled
responsibly.
During end-of-life processing, the material is segregated
into three residual waste fractions: plastic waste, the
remains of plants and stone wool granulate.
Residual drainage water is carefully separated, so as to
prevent it from leaking into surface waters.
The organic waste can be used to make products such as
compost.
The shredded substrate slabs, blocks and plugs are
recycled into raw material in a low-energy process for
various manufacturing processes like brick, cement,
potting compost or soil improver production. Some of this
raw material is turned into stone wool briquettes and used
in the ROCKWOOL factory to create new stone wool
products.
The plastic wrapping used for Grodan products is turned
into plastic granulate and used in the plastics industry to
manufacture refuse bags.
This re-use of resources from end–of-life products not only
diverts waste from landfill, but also reduces the
consumption of new raw materials, thereby reducing our
impact on the environment.
DKG GROUP ENVIRONMENTAL CODE OF CONDUCT
Our Environmental Code of Conduct is built on national and international norms and standards for
environmental management. The Code sets a minimum applicable operating standard for all of the
Group’s businesses. Each business is expected to implement its own Environmental Management
System, tailored to suit its size and type of activity.

continual improvement. We know that the importance of protecting the environment is one of the
key foundations of doing business and maintains a comprehensive infrastructure for planning,
managing, assessing, improving, monitoring and measuring environmental impacts.

This growing urban population will need access to healthy and nutritious food. Governments and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO's) are promoting fresh food consumption for health reasons along with the importance of producing safe food that is sustainably grown. In parallel consumers are becoming more health-conscious and are increasingly driven to local, natural, and sustainable quality offerings — a trend which is strongly tied to the modern focus on healthy eating. It is estimated that we will have to produce double the amount of healthy, nutritious food with half the resources of today. This leaves us with one of today's biggest challenges. Water, fertilisers, land and energy are crucial resources for food production. Less than 1% of the earth's fresh water is easily available and suitable for human use. 70% of that water is used for irrigation in agriculture. Water scarcity is addressed as part of the United Nations "Agenda 2030" Sustainable Development Goals. Reserves of fertilisers, that are crucial for the production of food, are running out. Continuous and increasing demand on land resources has had a negative impact on the area and quality of land available for food production. So, food production has to double while using half of the resources of today. “Food production has to double while using half of the resources of today” Our roots in sustainable growing Grodan supplies innovative and sustainable growing media solutions for professional growers and home gardeners. For almost 50 years our team has been dedicated to creating the optimal environment for roots resulting in healthy and strong plants. We are driven by developing the most sustainable growing solutions and by making these accessible to communities across the globe. This is our contribution to a future-proof horticulture that will provide people around the world with access to healthy food not only today but for generations to come. Our growing media solutions are designed for Precision Growing, which is the most sustainable way of growing. This is all about giving the plant exactly what it needs. This effective way of growing leads to a better yield and quality of fresh produce while at the same time using valuable resources in the most efficient way. As such Grodan brings the best of sustainability together, facilitating an efficient way of producing nutritious food to keep people healthy, with a positive impact on the planet by minimising the use of resources, whilst at the same time helping growers optimise their profit to sustain their businesses in the future. “Achieve sustainable food production for future generations” EU Ecolabel: the guarantee of sustainability In 2008, Grodan was the first stone wool growing media manufacturer to be awarded the European Ecolabel, the EU’s seal of approval for non-food products. This demonstrates that Grodan products comply with the European environmental criteria for growing media of mineral origin, such as stone wool. Grodan products comply with the specific demands of the EU Ecolabel as follows: • The Ecolabel for Grodan growing media applies to its use in professional horticulture. • Product pH, test method EN 13037 (using nutrient solution): pH 6.0 – 6.5 • Product EC, test method EN 13038: 10-25 MS/m • Germination and growth inhibition, test method EN 16086-1: no abnormalities

  • 65. 65 F O O D . S A F E T Y These sustainable growing practices and compliance with Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) ensure that greenhouses have limited environmental impact. Plants are grown in Grodan rockwool roots, (The manufacturing of GRODAN products is certified according to ISO 14001 standards) and we can feed them water and nutrients. Growing hydroponically in this material means our plants can stretch their nutrients directly where they need it – on their roots – rather than on their leaves or on other parts of the soil. Greenhouses help us to create the proper environment by providing our plants with the perfect temperature, humidity and the optimal amount of water, they are able to put all of their energy toward producing great tasting vegetables and fruits. Additionally, because less energy is spent on survival and fighting adverse environmental conditions, greenhouse produce typically has higher nutrient contents and yields than field-grown vegetables. Even with computer controlled irrigation and temperature, Mother Nature is still active in our greenhouse ecosystem. Bumblebees fly around to pollinate the plants and rather than pesticides, we use a program called Integrated Pest Management where ‘good bugs’ (such as lady bugs) prey on ‘bad bugs.’ Additionally, we’re able to use a fraction of the land and water that traditional farming requires with high yields and by sterilizing and re-circulating our run-off water. Product Responsibility DKG Group has committed to publicly share its views on the principles that are the foundation for product safety legislation or regulation. Consistent with our commitment to the principles, we support the development of responsible, science-based laws, regulations, standards, practices and procedures that safeguard the community, workplace and environment. DRIKA Farm (member of DKG Group) and all of our clients embrace a strong commitment to growing sustainable products by applying Good Agricultural Practices (G.A.P) in order to increase the quality, the taste and quantity of their crops, and to promote safe and efficient working practice. Apart, each of our client's products has the ability to trace the history, use or location of a product by means of registered identifications that is vital for consumer’s safety.

  • 66. 66 R E C Y C L I N G RECYCLING Source: ROCKWOOL Group Twitter We place a high priority on sustainable business. As part of this we set up a professional (country-specific) recycling service for our clients. This service is designed to guarantee that used stone wool products are recycled responsibly. During end-of-life processing, the material is segregated into three residual waste fractions: plastic waste, the remains of plants and stone wool granulate. Residual drainage water is carefully separated, so as to prevent it from leaking into surface waters. The organic waste can be used to make products such as compost. The shredded substrate slabs, blocks and plugs are recycled into raw material in a low-energy process for various manufacturing processes like brick, cement, potting compost or soil improver production. Some of this raw material is turned into stone wool briquettes and used in the ROCKWOOL factory to create new stone wool products. The plastic wrapping used for Grodan products is turned into plastic granulate and used in the plastics industry to manufacture refuse bags. This re-use of resources from end–of-life products not only diverts waste from landfill, but also reduces the consumption of new raw materials, thereby reducing our impact on the environment. DKG GROUP ENVIRONMENTAL CODE OF CONDUCT Our Environmental Code of Conduct is built on national and international norms and standards for environmental management.
