About Lensli

Sustainability is a key element in the entire operation

From the office to the end product, Lensli strives to strike a balance between people, the environment and the economy throughout the supply chain. To ensure the Earth is not depleted—for now and in the future.

Together with growers and cultivators, Lensli continuously seeks innovative and sustainable solutions to get the best out of the soil each day. All for a healthy future and growth.

Have Fun Growing, this is what Lensli, together with their customers, strives for.

"Our sustainability classification is an innovation we are proud of. It makes our substrates future-proof without compromising on quality and allows us to further assist our customers in their sustainability transition."

Rob Bierman, Commercieel Manager

Serving the entire professional horticulture industry as a substrate supplier

With years of experience, Lensli relies on formulas that have proven themselves in practice and serve as the basis for new applications. For every product they produce and deliver, Lensli can calculate the environmental impact. This provides insight into the footprint of their products and allows for improvements.

The Lensli team is constantly searching for new, innovative raw materials and possibilities to achieve the most optimal growth results. To support growers in their sustainability transition, Lensli classifies their substrates for sustainability, not only focusing on CO2 and peat content but also considering the origin and type of organic raw materials and fertilizers.

The substrates are divided into clear segments, providing convenience to their customers and enabling Lensli to maintain a targeted focus on research, development, and communication.

"Lensli aims to use more circular and renewable raw materials. The sector's target for this is set at 35 percent by 2025. However, we want to go even further and achieve a higher percentage by 2025. We recognize the importance and potential of using circular raw materials."
