Greenland – Greenlandic Greenhouse

One of the biggest challenges Greenland faces towards lowering greenhouse gas expenditure, is that most foods need to be imported, this means that the availability of healthy fresh vegetables and greens are expensive compared to other countries. This is an issue that Greenlandic Greenhouse is working to resolve through the production of high quality, pesticide free foods at a reasonable price, as well as contributing to a more sustainable and self-sufficient food delivery and supply system in Greenland.

This is done by working around the cold arctic climate and permafrost through indoor farming methods. Their products are sold to both private consumers and companies. The greenhouse production is powered by sustainable energy delivered by the local hydropower plant, where they further utilize excess heat to warm up the production facilities, additionally 90% of the total water consumption is reused.
