Rouveen Kaasspecialiteiten and daughter company Bio Kaas B.V. structurally give much attention to sustainability as it is an important theme within our firm.
We have signed the memorandum of understanding with the government concerning “Duurzame Zuivelketen”(Sustainable Dairy Industry). But not without a good reason. For more than a century based in the beautiful environment of “Slagenlandschap” in the municipality of Staphorst, the company forms a unity with the cultural historie of the “Streek” in Rouveen.
With much care concern is taken of the valuable past. At the same time we are working in a responsible way for a structural reason for existence. As a company we fulfill the realization thereof, but we also stimulate our member cattle farmers to work in a responsible way at their own company development on the farmyard.
Together with the local and provincial authorities we are working on a sustainability program that primarily focuses on energy savings and the use of green energy. Furthermore our member cattle farmers are offered to join workshops about animal welfare, energy and climate, landscape and environment. On voluntarily basis the farmers can have a energy scan done at their own farms, to determine where and how much energy can be saved in their own companies.
It is the dairy sector’s goal to work energy neutral in 2020, a challenge that has been taken by Rouveen Kaasspecialiteiten en Bio Kaas with great enthusiasm.
