Projects & Practice
Amstelland Natuurzuivel is a cooperative of farmers in the Amstelland region who set up a milk factory to produce regional dairy products for the Amsterdam area.
A cooperation project brought together local farmers, inhabitants and public services managers to jointly define and promote soil preservation technics adapted to the local environment.
This multi-million Euro project helped harness geothermal energy to produce heat and power by drilling wells into reservoirs of hot water that are found deep underneath the earth’s surface.
Agri-environment cooperatives in the Netherlands use results-based schemes to distribute payments to farmers according to on-farm nature conservation results.
