NL: Royal Lemkes provides solar energy to employees at home

On Tuesday 10 October, Sustainability Day in the Netherlands, Royal Lemkes had some green news to report: they now supply energy from their own solar panel roof to employees.



Managing Director Michiel de Haan states, “We have come a long way in our sustainability journey, from having the largest solar panel roof in the Netherlands in 2012 to becoming an energy supplier in 2017. Our building is equipped with 4,000 solar panels, LED lighting and heat pumps.”

The solar panels generate enough power for Royal Lemkes to work energy neutral and even produce more green energy than the company can use. “We are now making this electricity available to our employees, helping them to power their homes with green energy produced by Royal Lemkes. We are proud of being able to take a further step in our contribution to a greener world in this way,” says de Haan.
