We believe in the power of technological progress and innovation to deliver better, more creative solutions to the world’s greatest challenges. We’re always looking for new tools and new ways of thinking that can open the door to a future where quality, sustainability and efficiency go hand in hand in the new age of farming.
Controlled Environment Farms are an essential part of combating climate change. Bringing production closer to the point of consumption cuts down on emissions and enables us to respond quickly to changing demand, which in turn reduces food waste.
To create innovative, profitable and sustainable growing systems that make the highest quality produce accessible to all
That’s right; we are officially the first Controlled Environment Farm in the UK to get B Corp certification! Over the last 10 months, our sustainability team have been through a rigorous audit process measuring our social and environmental impact to validate that ZCF meets the highest standards of environmental and social transparency, performance and accountability. B Corp certification has put us alongside a growing group of companies reinventing business which are prioritising the planet over profits.
We have officially been certified as being Carbon Neutral +. To meet this standard we have accounted for all our GHG emissions in the past year and have offset these + 10% more to become net carbon negative.
Certification is provided by Carbon Footprint Ltd in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2018 guidelines and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s corporate standards.
We are thrilled to announce that we have been ranked 15th in Forward Fooding’s FoodTech 500, 2020’s definitive list of the best AgTech businesses in the world. Better still, we are the highest ranked company in the UK!
Maintaining our presence at the top end of the FoodTech 500 cements our position as the leading UK controlled environment farm and puts us in prime position as we move forward with our expansion.
