PlanetProof is an independent and originally Dutch sustainability label for dairy products, vegetables and fruit, eggs, flowers, plants, trees and flower bulbs. PlanetProof products are produced in a demonstrably sustainable way. The farmers and horticulturists work on for instance, cleaner air, fertile soil, good water quality and animal welfare. They pay attention to more nature on the farm, circular waste management and recycling. The requirements for PlanetProof are reviewed annually and tightened where possible.
